This week January ended and February started and it went great, all bills paid but I went over my weekly grocery shopping budget due to the Super Bowl party. Now I only went over $15 bucks but I still went over. Now the way that I got my $15 back is that I pulled money back from my pocket money. I give myself $20 a week in spending money, so I reduced it to $5.
One my ways of staying on top of my grocery budget is to pull from my pocket money and that usually evens it out. I never go more than a few dollars over it, so it's normally not a big deal. In the future I might make some changes as far as my grocery budget. If there is anything special going on where I need more grocery's, I might increase the budget and decrease money for another savings.
So this week I learned that my grocery budget might change month to month based on whats going on. We tend to cook more based on what's going on, so I will start adjusting my grocery budget accordingly. How did your week go? See you guys next week, and feel free to contact me for any advice.
