October Budget Results
October's Grocery Budget $425
Year to date overage prior to October $182.65
Actual October grocery spend $503.60. Over by $78.60 this month for year to date overage now at $261.25. No shock, I am still working at getting my freezer and cupboards full and grocery prices seem to be increasing. This month included Canadian Thanksgiving which added a bit of extra expense as well.
If you are a new follower the grocery budget includes all over counter medications, grooming and cleaning products.
Coupons Used $13.
Annual Clothing Budget $200
Remainder after September $30
($105 was transferred out of clothing to cover part of grocery overage in September)
Bought new pantyhose, and thrift shopped pants, belt, and shoes for a monthly total of $23.60 (see post here)and balance remaining for the rest of the year $6.40.
Annual Hair Budget $400
Balance after September $104.73.
The only expense in this category for October was a root colour kit bought on sale for $5.60 which has yet to be used.
Balance remaining for rest of year $99.13.
Goal this month - stay on budget!! Hubby is out of town on business for a few day so my goal is not go buy any groceries at all until Friday to restock for his return. That should save a few bucks.
