For the month of February I came in at $9.04 under my $500 budget. I purchased $798.51 of groceries for only $490.96. I saved $158.06 with coupons. My weekly average decreased from $123.51 in the month of January to $122.74 in February. It did not increase as much as I had hoped. Although this last week in February I purchased $31 of dog food at Target (on sale with coupons @ $6.99 each) and Zyrtec for my allergy sensitive hubby. So overall, I feel good that I came in under budget.
We have spring breaks in March which mean I need more food in the house, I am praying I can stretch my $500 to cover that as well.
