I have been naughty.
This frugal girl has not been keeping track of her household spending AT ALL!
Since we do all of our spending through a credit card that we pay off each month it was easy enough to go back through and add up all of our purchases. I was happy with our grocery bills but very unhappy with how much we spent on eating out!
We budget $200 a month on groceries and household supplies and $120 a month on eating out.
Groceries and all household supplies including medicines but not including baby stuff.
I went over by $38.91 but I am really not surprised considering the great sales that Kroger was having and how much I got stocked up.
Eating Out- includes any food/drink item purchased not at a grocery store.
Ouch this was way higher than I thought it would be. I have got to start making Kirt's lunches again and having a better plan for our meals so I don't hit the easy button and get Kirt to pick up Subway on his way home.
Yes I know there is one more week in February but I have bought all my groceries through that time frame so the only that is going to be added is eating out.
February Eating Out
Already over and there is a week to go, bleh.
Maybe March should be NO eating out March...I like a challeng but how am I going to convince hubs this is a good idea?
