Everyone laughs at me and my spreadsheets but I keep them for everything! I’m not sure I cold function without my spreadsheets.
Here are my Fabric Used and Fabric Added sheets for January. Sad to say but UPS is bringing me a box tomorrow so February won’t look nearly so good but all that really means is I have to bust a lot of fabric next month in order to have a good month.
And, here’s what we spent on groceries. I had planned to see if I could keep the grocery budget at $400 or less per month . . just to see if I could do it. For those who have told me that you spend $400 or less, how on earth do you do it? I bought zero beef because we have that in the freezer. This includes zero for cleaning/household supplies. We do eat most every meal at home. Except for one trip to Outback, we spent less than $50 eating out this month. While I was in California, I had left food or Vince and Chad cooked.
We don’t really try to save – we eat what we want to eat and buy what we want to buy, within reason, but it was just kinda my personal goal to see if I could keep the expenditures at $400 or less. I’ll try again in February.
