First 4 Weeks in Review

                                                           Estimated
                               Spent                   Savings         %Saved


Week 1                   $114.42               $54.72         32.4%
Week 2                   $124.70               $85.68         40.7%
Week 3                   $98.81                 $67.05         40.4%
Week 4                   $100.43               $160.66       61.5%

Total                        $438.36              $368.11        45.6%

My thoughts:  I feel like for the first 4 weeks that I did a pretty good job, we have definitely stocked our pantry (which should help staying w/in the budget) and I have learned a lot about shopping at Walgreens (currently my husbands favorite store - after this weeks Chex Mix and Pepsi deals!)

I do think that $100 a week is a realistic budget for our family (even though Todd thinks I should bump it up to $125).  So we will see what weeks 5 - 8 bring and we can re-evaluate after that!  Happy Shopping!
