I'm jumping in on this one. I really need to get our costs under control. I'm setting my budget at $600. This includes feeding 4 people, 1 cat and includes HBA, cleaning, and pet supplies. Oh and I'll be working on my stockpile as well.

I'm in for $450 for the month of April, since DH will be home full time until at least the end of the month. This is everything (food, HBA, cleaners, pet supplies, etc) for 2 adults, 2 children, 6 big dogs and 4 indoor cats.

I tried $475 in March and was over by $2.56. I am going to try $475 again for April. I hope I can do this. We have a big family reunion this month that I have to cook food for and Easter is this month as well. We'll see what happens...

I'm in for $300. This includes 2 adults, a baby, 2 dogs and 3 cats. This is my first month on a budget so I am going to try to include HBA but no promises. Even if that only inculdes food, it will be about half of what I'm used to spending!

I am really hoping for like 125$ this month. My bills have caught up with me and SO and I will really have to relay on our pantry and fridge/freezer. This includes: Food, HBA, Dog & Cat food.

Well, my freezer and pantry are so full I am having trouble putting items away. I usually do 285-300, but think this has to be a clean out what I have month. I will try for 200.00

Well, in order to prepare for less spending in April I made a casserole tonight with frozen turkey, and stockpile items. I am also eating on a porkloin that was in the freezer. Two large meals, no spending. Let's start April!
