$11.98 photo prints of kids for my desk at work/Dinner out (counting this as our lunch for the week since it was a cheap burger joint for a friend's birthday)
: $54.09 Groceries, McDonalds for DS1 & DH, Scones and coffee for breakfast.
(But Dh bought $9.34 in groceries)
: $80 for the Domperidone (budgeted), $9 for lunch at work, $9 for McDonalds for DH and DS1 when they visited me at work, and $15 for take-n-bake pizza for dinner.
Spending within budget
: Drat, I Blew it
Yeah, DH and I will be having a very pointed discussion this evening about the place fast food has in our life and our budget and his responsibilities for feeding us as the stay at home parent, because we're hemmoraging money because he doesn't plan ahead well and doesn't know how to do dinner. We've got to work on that.
Focusing on the positive: Our circular for the weekend grocery specials just came today and meat is on uber-sale Friday and Saturday. Chicken breasts, thighs, bratwurst, whole turkeys and bacon are all 50% off. I'm going to overflow my chest freezer, but have meat through next winter and I think I can still keep within my grocery budget.
2/16 no spending AT ALL days (not one cent, even if it's budgeted)
Eating limited to Friday supper and one weekend lunch.
No spending on hobbies, finish the projects I have.
No more than 1x week ordering in lunch at work.
>$400 on Groceries during the month. ($55.46/$400)
