    ok...going to try it again...didn't do so good last month...
    Instead of buying my groceries out of the checking account this month, I'm going to get the money out of the bank and use the envelope system. Hopefully this will work better.

    got my money out of the bank for the week. Divided into envelopes. I have $60 per week for groceries, including gas & pet food. The pantry looks pretty good, the freezer looks pretty full, so I should be able to make this work.

    Started this week with my $60. Here is what I spent.

    $8.40 book of stamps
    $10.00 gas
    $29.00 groceries

    I brought home $12.00 and change. (I put the change in the change jar). I now have some money left for the rest of the week.

    Yea, me!

    I'm in for $225 for 2 adults (food, hba & cleaning items) & $70 for pet supplies (2 dogs & a cat). We've spent $79 already since Saturday (2 trips to CVS & 3 grocery stores). I'll need to keep an eye on purchases since we are low on meat & will need staples (bread, milk, produce) each week. Spent $14 on cat litter & canned dog food.

    May - I am in for 320.00 this month. this is 80 less than our monthly standard. I intend to use the 80 toward debt repayment.
    We have a ton of groceries in the house but I will need fruit, produce, milk and bread. I hope to clean the pantry up this week and plan menus using what we have
