August Grocery Totals

Total Spent On Food:  $359.13
Manufacturer's Coupons Used:  $67.65

Overall not a fabulous month, but I did come in under our budget of $400 for food/household (didn't have much left for household items, but that's where my stock pile came in handy!)  I spent $85 for freezer cooking with friends, which provided about 14 meals for us.  That's $6.07 per meal with some providing leftovers.  Normally I can feed us for around $5 or less per dinner, but I still think it's more than worth the time together with friends and having a half of months worth of dinners already made.

Here's where I'm struggling as well: camping!  I just feel a bit restricted with what we can bring.  I think I need to get more creative ☺.

I also got a bit lazy with my couponing.  For me it's hard in the summer since my husband and I both have it off!  We kind of just do what we please in regards to a schedule.  In no way am I complaining, but it would probably help if I had more of an organized and timely personality.  So sad to see summer end, but looking forward to the routine that comes with the start of school.
