May Grocery Tally

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.

I know this is rather late, but I wasn’t here to get it posted.  I came in way under budget this month!  You would think it was because I wasn’t here for a week but I actually splurged on a lot of things for the kids before we left-mostly without coupons.  Gasp! My grocery bill was about $35 less.

I really didn’t do too much shopping in May.  I’m waiting to go over budget when I restock some of the items that I’m out of or running low on, but overall my pantry is pretty stocked.

My weekly budget is $75. See past months HERE

Total Shelf Cost $551.33
Total Saved in Coupons $313.20

Total Spent $149.36 
Savings 72.91%
Average per Week $37.34

What to do with my extra $150?!?!

How did you do in May?

    WOW that is GREAT!!! I wish I could do that well. I am already over budget for this month LOL.. but I'm just starting and starting to stock up on some items.. Laundry detergent/dryer sheets is where most of my money went this month lol

    You have to spend what's right for your family. Laundry detergent is expensive and stockpiling takes time.
    I should have mentioned again that my budget is $75 week for my family of 4. Most months aren't this good :)
