I am done grocery shopping for the month so am reporting our January Grocery Results now:
Budget $550 - Actual spend $570.90.
Over by $20.90 which comes off the $550 next months budget so only $529.10 will be spent in the shorter month of February. Only $2 in coupons were used this month. It was tough staying anywhere near budget this month, but I did manage a few bargains, primarily on $1.49 day at my family-owned grocery store. I spent $30 and came home with about $80 worth of groceries that day. It appears they will be continuing with this sale day once per month usually right at the end of the month so I will have to keep my eyes out for the next one as they only advertise it a few days ahead. The freezer is still half-full and there are some vegetables in the fridge but I do need to get some more fruit.
