Hi, Friends! We've been doing fairly well living off of our stockpile and sticking to our lower grocery goals. For those of you who are new (welcome by the way!), I usually spend $55/week for our family of four. The $55 includes groceries, toiletries, paper products, and pullups. This month, due to extra expenses, I made a goal of living off of my stockpile and lowering my budget to $25/week + $40 for KMart's Super Double coupons sale. Here's how it looks so far:
KMart: 24.79 (15.21 UNDER budget)
Week 1 (Meijer): 32.75 (7.75 OVER budget)
Week 2 (Meijer): 26.48 (1.48 OVER budget)
As of today, I am still 5.98 UNDER my projected budget of 90.00 (2 grocery trips + 1 KMart).
I still have 55.98 left to spend for the month.
Can I do it? Yes, I can!
