$70 is how much I have left in the budget this month for groceries. Yeah, I did a big grocery shop the beginning of the month and have made two small not-the-best-deal grocery shops. I didn’t fall off the frugal wagon, I just dangled one leg over the side for a bit. Last week was just a crazy week and I fell a little behind …there were a few things that I got, deal or not.
Anyway, so out of $350 for the month, I have $70 left. Usually, I try to keep it around $300/month for groceries but this is a “long” month. I know, that seems weird because all months have 30-31 days but months with 5 Fridays are “long” when it comes to the budget. I can’t explain it, but on the 5 Friday months, we need a little extra grocery money, gas money and pocket money. But we also bring in more money those months. But because Friday’s are paydays, we have an extra payday on 5 Friday months! :)
Okay, so back to it. There are 17 days left in the month and I have $70. I’ve taken it out in cash (no debiting gorceries!) so I can keep track of it.
Do you think I can do it? $70 for 17 days? I’ll keep you posted!
