Final Numbers for September – Saved $742.84

I cannot believe how little we spent this month – we spent $135.61 and this is officially the least we’ve EVER spent in any given month.  I’m always proud to show off my numbers, but I want to make sure you’re all aware that this was NOT a typical month.  We had a freezer full of home cooked meals still from last month so I never got around to doing a freezer cooking day this month and I only buy meat the day before I do that which means we bought no meat this month.  Unfortunately I think I’m going to be hurting in October since I “goofed off” in September and I’m all set to work at local festivals THREE weekends this month.  Hubby is a hobby beekeeper and each fall he harvests the honey and we sell it at local festivals.  I’m going to try and squeeze in a freezer cooking day in between all of the festivals, but I think I’m also going to reserve the right to use some of last month’s savings to eat out a little more than usual this month 😉

According to the spreadsheet we’ve spent $3,034.58 so far this year and have saved $11,165.76.  That’s an average of $337 per month for our family of seven.  We used to spend that on a weekly basis and never had any sort of a stockpile so I’m just thrilled with the savings!
