We were coming in so far below budget this month that we decided to do a quick freezer cooking day last weekend so we ran to Sam’s Club and spent $56 on meat and STILL came in way below our monthly budget of $375! For the month of June we spent $261.28 to buy $1,163.40 worth of groceries, or a savings of 78%! According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $1,375.90 so far this year for $7,057.96 worth of stuff, or 81% off. That equates to $229 per month for the first half of the year, hopefully we’ll be able to continue staying well below budget, but I am planning to invest some of that savings in new dishes, cookware and towels for the kitchen as a reward!
Final Numbers for June – Saved $902.12
