    I ended April over budget (of course) by almost $100 but on the bright side... it's the second week of May and I have yet to do any grocery shopping. Going to keep the $250 budget for 3 adults, food only.

    Grocery budget $165 (lower this month) and I have spent $49 so far. Getting greens from the garden and eating salads. I'm also doing a good job of using leftovers and what is on hand.

    Although grocery spending was under budget, several other categories were a disaster in May (car maintenance, A/C repair, chiropractor.) June budget lowered to $150. Hoping for some garden produce by the end of the month. Possibly forage blackberries.

    In May I baked all my bread products except for 1 package hamburger buns 99 cents for the Memorial Day weekend. I will do that again for June. I eat toast most mornings for breakfast.

    I'm going to try this again. June goal for 2 adults with a garden and freezer full of food: $250. Just a guess. I don't know if this is too high or too low.

    Pay off Ohio House - $621.02/$3,330.56
    Save for whole house generator - $0/$15,000 (Guess amount, no quote)
    Fully Fund all Retirement Accounts & HSA - $3,172.43/$43,000
    Save for fruit trees - $0/$1,000 (by December)
    Survive Outage - 6-12s for 3-6 months.....love the pay, hate the hours
    Save for pond....now a 2022 goal

    LL... going to try again too. I start off with good intentions then lack with posting and losing receipts.

    This is everything except prescription meds. OTC included along with food, paper, HBA, pet and pet food. Sophies pet med is not included. It's prescription. I'm going to go with $250 and shoot for closer to $200. With the way the groceries have went up here I don't think I can hit $200 anymore. Since when did apples go to $7 a bag????? And that's not organic. Just plain Granny Smith apples. I went with the red ones for $4.49 which was ridiculous too. I don't do organic. I think that's a crock. My opinion only.

    Today spent 33.57 and "saved" with sale prices $16.54. I'll be going back though after I look for coupons for the stuff ( BOGO's ) that I bought. All stuff we use. In Florida you can use coupons on the free one too.
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    Ha ha. Hubby bought a rotisserie for the grill a couple years ago. Sunday I said "why don't you make something on the rotisserie so we can have leftovers for the week?" He went out and bought 2 HUGE pieces - a turkey breast and some sort of beef. His money so I'm not complaining. I need to come up with vegetables......

    I'm really surprised that I was over for May, I was stuck at home because of high water for more than 2 weeks. Still going to keep the budget the same, $250 3 adults food only.
