Final Numbers for October – Saved $570.15

This was a pretty good month since we were able to stay $97 under our current monthly budget of $300! For the month of October we spent $202.51 to buy $772.66 worth of groceries, toiletries, and cleaning supplies, or a savings of 74%! According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $2,163.44 so far this year for $9,027.51 worth of stuff, or 76% off. That equates to an average of $216 per month for our family of seven, or $1.03 a day per person!

We were running well below budget for the month of October, but then I got a notice that Zaycon Foods would be delivering 93/7 lean ground beef in November and I hustled on over to place my order.  Although we won’t get the beef until next week, we paid $115 for it during October so it is included in the monthly numbers.  We bought 40 pounds of chicken from them last month so the freezer will be pretty well stocked up for awhile.  Now I’ve just got to plan another freezer cooking day for next weekend.  I’m happy that we still came in nearly $30 below our monthly budget of $375! For the month of October we spent $345.35 to buy $1,255.97 worth of groceries, toiletries and cleaning supplies, or a savings of 73%! According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $2,373.04 so far this year for $11,355.16 worth of stuff, or 80% off. That equates to an average of $237 per month for our family of seven, or a little over $1/day per person!

We only got one freezer cooking day in during October or the final numbers might have been higher, still I’m very pleased that we only spent half of this month’s budget.  We spent a total of $250.78 to purchase $825.59 worth of groceries, toiletries and household items.  The freezer isn’t as stocked as I’d like it to be, and I’m hoping to squeeze in a couple freezer cooking days in November to fill it back up so I’m sure our numbers won’t be near this low next month.  According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $3,285.36 so far this year and have saved $11,991.35.  That’s an average of $329 per month for our family of seven, or an amazing $47 per person!
