It’s 5/31 – the end of a LONG month and we did our last bit of grocery shopping today: We hit Target today for the pet food we needed.
Cat food, 12 large cans for $4.45 — and the $11 20# bag of Dog Chow for our black lab with a $1 coupon…OK, far from great deals, but we needed it! This should hold us over a month as the cat food is mixed with dry and the dog gets 1.5 cups a day with possible supplementing from my dear child.
$14.45+ tax…gives us about $1 left and we came in under budget for the month. SEE – it CAN be done!! Pet food, REAL food, personal care items and more for a family of three with a cat and a dog.
$100 beginning budget
$85.27 (as of week one)
$66.65 (as of week two)
-$2.53 from Target
$47.62 (as of week three)
***take the time to set a budget, then work with it – you will be amazed at what happens!
