Well I went over in my grocery budget last month by quite a bit. My goal was $325 and I actually spent $370.34. I will say I am pretty stocked up on toiletries and paper products, and the pantry is full, but not too sure what I spent all that money on otherwise??? I did have $324.81 in savings, thanks to me cashing in $200 worth of points at Shopper's Drug Mart. By after Easter I will have enough points for another $100 worth of free product on bonus redemption days.
My goal for this month is the same $325, with $100 in savings. I am hoping to be way under, as the more I buy the more I have to pack!!! And the more boxes we have the more dh will whine ;0)
Also this is the second day of the April daily savings club, and as it is $1 per day, today you will have $2 in your pot. I have been putting $1 away per day in my pot since day one, and that money will come in so handy for when we move, as between April 29th to May 1st, cooking meals will be hard, as I am going to be busy cleaning out the new house and actually moving house. So they will be long days, and I know I won't be wanting to start to cook meals after a long day cleaning and then a 50 minute drive home to our old house. Not sure what else we can do, so suggestions would be greatly appreciated, for money saving ways of providing meals during that time. I can see us living out of Tim Horton's for those three days.
