Final Numbers for July – Saved $631.43

Wow – this is the cheapest month in the history of our family at only $222.80 spent for July!  We were WAY under our $500 monthly budget for our family of seven, plus a dog, two cats, five four hermit crabs, twenty beehives and an apparently unlimited supply of Sea Monkeys.  I attribute the large majority of that savings to all the freezer cooking we did in June.  We still have plenty of meals in the freezer and had out of town visitors for most of July so we didn’t do any freezer cooking this month, therefore we didn’t buy any meat this month.  Since this is an unusual occurrence I’m going to reserve the right to use some of the savings from this month on next month’s freezer cooking, but honestly I’m still hoping to come in under budget for August too 😉 

According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $2,490.51 so far this year and have saved $7,476.50.
