previous total $292.87
plus $38 for fancy cut of meat for Xmas.
plus $123.75 for super mega trip to co-op, some specific to holiday
4 frozen entrees for back-up lunches at my office
pecans, walnuts and other nuts
Sparkling Apple Cider
Tandoori sauce for fast dinners at home
sliced bread for sandwiches this week when son is home from school
graham crackers (for snacks and cheesecake cups for Xmas eve)
1/2 gallon yogurt
2 gallons milk
maple syrup (this was a huge chunk of the bill, but it is what we buy every 2 months or so and we eat pancakes etc A LOT).
candy cane for son's stocking
bread for stuffing
That puts me at 454.62/500 for the month. Should have no other charges till the end of the month other than the CSA delivery on Thursday. That should put us right at or slightly under the $500 budget. I am comfortable with that, considering we eat all organic, rarely eat out, are not on a tight budget and we are meeting our goal to eat a ton of produce.

It is never the wrong time to do the right thing.
