Budget Update

How much do I stink at taking pics of everything I buy?!? Good grief! As the second week of the budget is done, I thought I would update you on my spending. Not to mention, updating helps keep me aware of just how much I have spent.
Week 1 totals were: $39.07! Yeah! $10.93 under budget.
Week 2 totals were: $88.57! Ouch! But, I got a TON of stuff!

What I bought in week 1(sorry for the very, VERY long list):
  1. 2 Play-doh toys $.06

  2. 1 Leap Frog game $.63

  3. Matchbox cars $1.00

  4. Necklace chew toy $.47

  5. 2 ceramic snowmen dishes $.90

  6. 2 ceramic santa dishes $.90

  7. 4 Andes mints--free

  8. 1 pair of earrings $.30

  11. 2 pkgs. Zany bands $1.84

  12. 1 Melissa & Doug train paint set $.51

  13. 1 Melissa & Doug car paint set $.51

  21. 1 Nivea body wash

  22. 1 pkg. gum

  23. 1 pkg. candy sticks

  24. 1 Garnier hair color

  25. 1 Crest toothpaste (#'s 19-25 were nothing out of pocket, used $3.46 on gift card, $3.00 wellness cpn, and got back $8.50 in wellness cpns.)

All of those purchases were from Kohl's, Rite Aid, and Hallmark for a total of $15.43.




Whew! Break for pics, and here is rest of list:
  1. 7 Neuragen--$20.00 moneymaker...each!!!!!

  2. 4 caramel candies (fillers)

  3. 4 cases of pop

  4. 7 floss

  5. 2 Revitalize contact solution

  6. 5 pkgs of M&M's (fillers)

  7. 1 Simply Orange juice

  8. 4 pkgs. Jell-O

  9. 2 Degree deoderant (Walgreens total was $18.78)

  10. 1 turkey breast--Costco $12.42! Ouch!

  11. 1 case of beer

  12. 1 pkg. romaine lettuce

  13. 1 pkg. organic tortilla chips (Costco total $33.85)

  14. 6 pkgs oat wafers $3.00

  15. 1 HUGE bag of salt water taffy $5.00

  16. 2 boxes of butter cookies $1.00

  17. 2 tins of honey candy $1.00

  18. 30 jars of Smuckers jam/jelly $3.50!!!

  19. bananas

  20. oranges

  21. bagels ($7.01 total from Meijer)

Total for Meijer, Walgreens, and Costco were 73.14! If I calculate in the money maker from the Neutragen though, that is a $140.00 money maker total! Woot! So if all of those work out properly, then I will come out more than ahead. I am coming to realize just how much I spend on deals though. I might have to look at really trying to budget seperately for that.


P.S. In the pic with the wallpaper, there are our 2 flooring choices. Both are real wood (hickory). I am having a hard time deciding between which one to go with. I am starting to lean towards the dark though.


Here is a link with our 2 choices next to each other. The dark hickory pictured is fairly close to the stain of the one we might choose.

So, take a peek and let me know what you think! I have until tomorrow--Monday to choose!
