|March 1 Grocery Shopping|
I never did that last grocery shopping trip in February, as I didn't feel well. Instead, on Wednesday, March 1, I did a small grocery shopping trip and bought:
1 loaf of bread = $1.29
1 lb. butter = $2.99
1 pint milk = $1.19
1 pint half and half = $1.79
2 lb. banana @$.69/lb. = $1.38
2 bolillo rolls = $.50
Total = $9.14
Butter was on sale for $2.99 and I debated long and hard if that was the price at which to stock up. I decided to buy just one package for now and hold out to see if it goes on sale for $2.50, at which price, I'd stock up. I am hoping that it works out that way.
I had $9.45 left in the February grocery budget. So, even though I bought these groceries on March 1, I am going to consider it as my February Week 4 grocery shopping.
|March 1 Grocery Receipt|
February grocery budget = $75 + $20.53 carried over from January = $95.53
Spent to date = $10.11 + $24.69 + $51.28 + $9.14 = $95.22
Balance remaining = $.31
How's that for budgeting to the penny? LOL. I will not carry over anything from February into March. The March grocery budget will be $75, as usual.
How did you do with your February grocery budget?
