August Grocery Tally

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

I came in under budget again this month!  I didn’t come in as far under budget as in July, but under nonetheless.  I also went to the commissary with my MIL at the end of the month.  I spent $110.91, slightly over my intended budget.  My savings rate looks pitiful since I can’t factor in my commissary saving (other than coupons) and that was 1/3 of the monthly budget.  However, it worked out beautifully because we’ve spent less than $30 so far in September. 

We have a $75 per week or $300 per month grocery budget.  Want to learn more about my family and our spending habits? Read THIS post

    We have a monthly budget of $200 and came in $74 short! Guess that's what happens when you've been sick all month and can't go shopping! Thankfully I've been creating detailed lists and sending friends and my husband out with a envelope of coupons. Savings percentage of 66%, a little lower than last month, but I'm not complaining!

    That was a great month! I hope you're starting to feel better! Lucky you have people willing to be crazy couponers and shop for you :)

    Get well soon!
