Bloom trip 5/16

This is my Bloom shopping trip from Monday. They had the deal going on where if you bought 2 Tyson Chicken Family Packs you got Popsicle, Rolls, French Fries, and Pictsweet veggies for FREE!!! Great deal even without coupons!. I got the dog food for 9.49 and the downy for 3.99. The toaster strudels had peelie on them and i spent a little of 2 bucks for both of them. Altogether i spent about 25.00  and saved 35.00. Not too shabby 🙂

Walgreens trip 5/18

NOT the best of trips today. They only had 1 item that i wanted in stock!!! UGHHH…oh well thats how it goes. I only spent $3.57 OOP and i spent 14.00 in RR. I got $10 in RR back from the Glucose Monitor, which i got for my dad. So not HORRIBLE, but not the best either. OH WELL! There is always next week 🙂 How did you all do this week?

http://csahm.com/home-articles/how-to-create-a-grocery-budget/

This is a good read on budgeting. We are not so good at budgeting here at my house LOL. We do OK about not living beyond our means, but I believe that we could do really well if we budgeted. That’s why I have started keeping grocery receipts ,and the like, so I can start to see about how much we spend. I will go from there and just try budgeting this one area. Then we will see about budgeting everything else. I know, I know, your supposed to budget according to EVERYTHING you earn and spend. For us though,i think this is the best way to start. I think budgeting should be done by everyone, we all want a savings for retirement, right? Or money to send our kids to college (if that’s what they choose).

How does your family budget?? Do you have a really good strategy that everyone could use?
