Grocery budget update for Jan 2013
This is the month that I am trying to follow the Pantry challenge. I did some end of December 2012 stock up, with the hope of not really buying much this month (now Jan 2013). I did venture out this weekend, as I helped DD get ready to return to college with some requested groceries. While we did score some real bargains, monies were spent. Here are my tallies for the month so far:
CSA 2012 $50 (sadly, my last "payment" in my budget. The CSA is now on hold for 2013, with uncertainty as to whether or not they will ever start up again)
Take out/restaurant: $50
coupon savings $37.39
The next 2 weeks are my crunch time as the semester ends, exams are given. I anticipate little, if any shopping until the end of Jan, instead stopping to just restock milk, OJ, eggs. I'd love to end Jan with at least $100 to toss into savings, with the hope of doing even better in Feb.
