I also include dog/cat food and any kind of cleaners/TP/hygiene products in our grocery budget. anyway....went to the grocery today...spent $104 out of our grocery budget and $40 out of my cash that I got from selling stuff. I'm trying to spend as little out of the actual budget so I can save up as much as I can for the IRS. all that I bought should last us til the end of next week or maybe the middle of the next week. I was happy with the amt considering that 90% of what I bought was produce.
Good job!!
