February UNDER $1.92
March OVER $.73
April UNDER $8.19
May UNDER $4.53
June OVER $4.22
July OVER $.79
August UNDER $34.37
September UNDER $9.77
October OVER $7.83
November OVER $12.69
So I am still UNDER budget by $28.55, as of the end of November.
That is a good thing, as I KNOW I will go over my December budget this weekend with the
Copp’s Double Double Days sale tomorrow!
I have $17.76 left for December and, when you add in that $28.55,
that takes me to the almost $46.00 that I had figured for my first four transactions.
I should JUST squeak it out this year.
Pretty darned decent, if you ask me.
I haven’t increased my budget in 2 years and food prices have jumped!
The $2.89 box of cereal I used to buy is now $4.19…Peanut butter went from $2 a jar to $3…
and let’s not talk about coffee prices.
I think I will try to keep it at $100 a month for 2012 too — at least for the first quarter.
Then, I will see if I need to re-evaluate and increase the budget.
How is your budget working out?
