this month is a stock up on allergen free food for the summer (every 3 months I budget more just for this purpose)


So this month is $700 for food only but I plan on doing a big allergen free stock up to save money next 2 months so my budget varies


I am also planning a birthday party beginning of June for my youngest so I am buying food on sale and put it in the freezer and buying the cake mixes and decorating stuff that will keep on sale as well

My budget is 200.00 for just food. I have already spent 61.00. We have plenty of food so I am not going to do anything extra or stock up. I want to put more money into savings (yes not debt, life changes and we aren't prepared enough). So I really need to stick to the goal (s). :))

My budget is $300, but I've been over budget so far this year and am trying to balance things. So my May budget is only $236.13. I've already spent $162.51. This leaves me with $73.62 for the rest of the month :( Even though that is only food, I think it's a far stretch.

Our Grocery budget will be about $450 for the month. I hope to come waayyyy under that amount. This includes household supplies, diapers, and food.

We are leaving on May 30th, and will be gone for 16 days. My plan this month is to use everything up in the freezer and refrig, and hopefully some of the pantry items like specialty flours.
