12 Weeks into the year and I don't feel like we are doing too bad, although I know we can do better. At 12 weeks in, we've spent $826.29 on groceries and drugstore purchases. That's $68.85/wk and about $76 more than we budgeted for. Typically, when I go over budget, it comes out of my personal envelope. Paul hates that I do this, but I figure groceries are something that I primarily deal with so if I go over budget, it's on me and I should take care of it.
As far as I'm concerned, our April budgeting period started on Friday (based on a 4wk budgeting period), and so far we are doing pretty well. With 4 trips under our belt, we've only spent $25, which leaves us plenty to pick up more fresh produce throughout the week.
Total Spent This Year: $826.29
Total Saved: $1957.98 or 73.28%
