March Grocery Totals

Total Spent On Food: $398.20
Manufacturer's Coupons  Used: $38.75
Store Savings: $69.59

A high month for me, but I knew it was coming!  Last month was $202!  So to recap, we have seven people in our family, and even on a high month, we came in under budget ($400).  I'm happy for that, but know that if I'd used coupons a bit more, it would have been lower.  This is where real life comes in!  I haven't had quite as much time lately to devote to coupons between watching children in our home to training for a half marathon and all the things that come with having five children.  I don't feel bad for this, but I do hope for a lower month in April.


  1. With the price of healthy fruit and vegi's going up, I am excited to think of how much we will save once we get the garden planted.

  2. I know! I can't wait to get the garden going and looking forward to all the bounty:)

  3. I'm still amazed at how low you can keep your food budget though. We did ok March with $80 coupons used, but we're already rolling some of our April stuff into May just so it doesn't look like I went over. Sigh. Plus with having to eat so strictly I have to fit some more expensive stuff into our budget. Well, God's provision is always good and just what we need! Steady on Friend <3 Can't wait to hear about all those big CC payments chunking down the rest of that nasty debt!!! CB
