Well, summer is in full swing at my house filled with daily activities to keep the kids busy. As expected my grocery budget has taken a decent hit this week. It seems like my kids are eating all the time now that they are home. I was way over budget this week, actually, I nearly tripled my weekly budget!
This included a pretty decent trip to BJ’s so stock back up from our Disney vacation. Plus a few household things I do not buy that often. My Publix was more than normal too. Hopefully next week I can stay under budget so they balance out. I am thinking for the summer I will increase my normal $100 to $120 a week. That includes my monthly trip to BJ’s too. I just take the balance from the week and move it to my BJ’s envelope.
We did go out to eat a couple of nights this week, so I can carry over those meals to next week too. That will save me a bit more cash in the following week — I hope ;).
Here are my over budget shopping totals for this week:
Spent – $287.61
Saved – $143.80
