Filled up the gas tank today, if our Governor has his was it will soon cost us 30 cents more per gallon to fill up. That will definately mean readjusting my budget for gas.

DS16 came out and told me that the tie was actually 20... Evidently the full price was buy one get one 50% off and the mom sent the boy down with an additional 30% of coupon (smart mom)... so, she made the boys split the cost down the middle so no one paid full price for the tie!

Nan, ties are very expensive!

We sat and figured out what we spend on milk for a year, over $600

I ended up at J's last night and spent $14.32 on Christmas paper packs, all on sale and since I didn't have any left I think I did pretty well. The kiddos just shook their heads and laughed.

I know that either today or tomorrow Dh will be going out to get a few things for us (my organizer for this year's bills, breakfast cereals from whole foods, and some things for church) But I am overall happily please even without a no buy day yet this week.

I have only spent money on bills, groceries, and gas so far this month. My budget for Gas is $400 and I have spent $139.47. My grocery budget is $600 and I have spent $86.40. I hope to spend less then $150 but it will be tough as we are out of everything.

I did really well at the grocery store. I was hoping to spend less then $150 and I spent $136.36. I was so excited I almost did a happy dance. So far this month I have stayed on budget for gas & groceries. I have not bought anything that wasn't a necessity and I have only used up 1 of 5 of our eat out nights and that was my fault I tried a new receipe and didn't have a back up plan so we ordered pizza. The kids were happy about it. We have no plans this weekend so we won't be spending money or wasting gas.
