January Grocery Totals
Total Spent On Food: $369.15
Manufacturer's Coupons Used: $119.55
A month within budget ($400 for food/household), but higher than I'd like. I included in my total a $50 gift card we got to Winco. I used it to stock up on staples like sugar, butter, eggs and milk. I buy milk four gallons at a time, so if I'm not getting a discount, it's $8 a shot. Every time I have a very low month, it's followed with a higher month, so it all averages out-it just feels better to be spending in the $200's rather than the $300's!
