2010 Spending totals
Mon, 01-10-2011 - 12:29pm

During 2010 I tracked the spending for several of my budget categories. I did the obvious ones like groceries and household supplies but I also did a few others. Here are my totals for the past year............

GROCERIES--$3667.84 for an average of $305.65 per month. This is groceries only. It's for mostly a family of 4, sometimes 5; 19ds was home during the summer & the occasional college break. THis is down from the previous 2 years. In 2009, my monthly average was $317.76 and it was $357.12 in 2008.

HOUSEHOLD SUPPLIES--$1132.53 for an average of $94.38 per month. This category includes things like dogfood, toiletries, cleaning supplies, stamps, printer ink, etc.
