|September 26 Groceries|
I did a small grocery shopping, today, for bread, bananas, coffee creamer, and ice cream. I actually didn't need any of it, especially the ice cream, as I still have pita bread, regular milk, and other fruits (and two over-ripe bananas). But, I like the flavored creamer when I have coffee, I don't like over-ripe bananas, I was thinking some French toast will be nice but can't make them with pita bread, and I've been craving ice cream, so I decided to go ahead and buy these items. I bought just two bananas because when I buy more, they ripen too much before I can eat them all.
Creamer = $2.59
1 loaf regular sandwich bread = $1
1 pint ice cream = $1.99
2 bananas @$.59/lb. = $.36
Total = $5.94

Since I didn't do any grocery shopping over the weekend, I guess this counts for both Weeks 3 and 4? I don't see myself doing any grocery shopping between now and the end of the month on Friday.
Total spent so far in September = $8.49 + $11.66 + $5.94 = $26.09
Since I had gone over the budget in August by over $70, I had wanted to keep my spending to under $40 for groceries in September. It looks like I will keep my spending to under $30. I have made up more than $45 of the $70+ I overspent in August. I just have to keep my grocery spending to $50, in October to make up the total amount. More than possible, because I have budgeted separately for the prayer gathering dinner.
How are you doing in your September grocery shopping?
