    I don't really have a budget. My challenge will be to track what I spend. I know I do "well," but I don't carefully track it. This month, I will.

    $200 for us. I need to track everything this month and just talked to DH about this. Since we are squeaking with lack of funds these months, we really need to be much wiser about what we are doing. Mahalo for starting this Intlmom!!

    I need to bump up the budget a bit, we've spent the last 3 months cleaning out pantries and freezers so I am down to very little in the house! We also have Thanksgiving so my budget is $500 for the month!

    Money is super-tight. We are going to keep it to $200 for 3 people, a dog and 2 cats. Thank goodness for my stockpile!

    I try to be more on the ball than this as I just finfished totaling up the Oct. bills last night. I went over. I've had a harder time with the grocery budget in the last year than I've EVER had before. I'm going to set it for $400 this month including going out to eat. If I can do this one then next month I might try cutting back again.

    I'm in for $250. I stocked up last month, so I should be able to do pretty well this month. This is the hardest for me to whittle down for some reason....

    ~I'm in this month for $300, which is more than my usual budget. I want to have enough wiggle room to stock up on the good holiday deals.~
