So, today we went to Walmart to pick up a few things. There was a lot of things that we could of picked up, however, I really am trying to stay within my $300/mo budget. Here is what I managed to pickup and stay within my budget.
1 - Gallon of Milk - 2.58
1 - Salt - .62
1 - Hormel Pepperoni - 2.98
6 - Budding Lunch Meat - .58/each
1 - French Bread - 1.68 (I wonder when the price went up ... used to be 1.00 a loaf)
1 - Franz White Bread - 2.68
Walmart Total: $16.40
January Total: $298.95 (I stayed within my budget!!!)
So, after having a very tight budget to work with this week, I learned that we need to do better next month about spreading our budget more evenly. However, we also learned that really I have a lot of items in my house, and we really don't need much to get by cooking at home.
