I am 1 dollar away from going over budget on groceries this month. The plus is that the month is nearly up. The bad is that although we have enough food to pull together meals, and we don't have to buy groceries for a week, the plausibility of that happening is slim. I suspect that we'll be buying pizza and subway for a couple meals at least (ugh) for ease. We'll see. Either way, I'm really proud of myself for doing SO well with my grocery budget for the past two months. Hopefully it will continue.
I ended up finding a 20% off coupon for BBB yesterday, and I got TWO trash cans (one for the kitchen and one for the spare bathroom) for really cheap. It was on sale :-) And yes, I didn't have to buy a 40 dollar trash can (who does that!?) but it was important to me that I have one that looked nice, and that had a flip top because I cannot stand open trash containers. Awful. Money well spent, IMO.
