It’s hard to believe we are already two months into this year!  Looking at our budget so far for the year, things have been going great.  Eating out of the pantry for almost the whole month of January put us way ahead.  We hve enjoyed using some of that cushion to get restocked with the Publix Italian Days sales.  I also ran to Food Lion for a few things, which was the first time in I don’t know how long.  The Food Lion trip wasn’t because they had great deals, it was really because they are now the closest grocery store to us (though still 15 minutes away).

Total before sales and coupons: $88.10
Total Spent: $45.17
Total Saved: $42.93 or 48.7%

Food Lion
Total before sales and coupons: $57.65
Total Spent: $33.60
Total Saved: $24.05 or 42%

In the end for the week we were over budget by $19.  This week had to events we were hosting, a Romans 12 Hospitality Tea and a 5 year old birthday party.  So, to come in close to budget and grab everything we needed… I’m quite pleased!
