notsure where to put this...shocking for me
This is why we never have any money...eekkkkk!!!! Gerrrrrrr!!!
totals for month of April
groceries/walmart- 590.89 !!!!!!!!
gas- 102.26 ( i did good in this area because gas here is 3.17 for the cheapy kind, thank GOd we only have 1 car)
now that everyones eyes are popping out and i almost had a heart attack, iam going to make alot of changes for may. mostly everything in the clothes entertainment area, was in fact clothes for the whole family and we dont shop often but one thing i noticed is i dont thrift shop and yard sale anymore. i need to jump back on the wagon. i use to get way better quality clothes yard saleing and thrift shopping then i would have at walmart anyway.
and groceries are off the hook!!!! iam going to cut down to 400.00 a month, i would like to cut down more, but right now baby steps. this site has helped me alot so far in this area now i just need to apply what i have learned. this week my goal is to buy just milk, eggs, bread, cheese, one pack of whatever meat is on sale, and just cook with what i have on hand. later i will get together everything i have on hand and i will be posting for ideas on recipes for next week. thanks for the support guys!!!!!

I feel you have made the first step in realizing where it all went and what you can change. You will do fine.

Sounds like a great plan and I'm sure you'll have it all under control in no time!

Shock is good. Most of us were probably "shocked" into becoming frugal. Now you have a plan and things will be better. You are on the right track.

Don't feel to bad I put all my expenses for 2005 into a EXCEL spreadsheet....WOW, is all I can say, our thing is we were eating out too much! I am doing extremely better this year, starting because I had to but with all the support here from all the nice folks I am going to keep with it.

Yep, it can be a shock when you add it all up! You'll do great though, baby steps, baby steps, that's the key!
