New side bar item

I added a new sidebar item to track my savings and keep a better eye on my spending. I have acquired quite a stockpile now and am hoping to have decreased my monthly budget of 500. Ideally I would like to get my budget down to 250 a month, I dont know if that is overly optimistic...we will see.

How much are you trying to save???

Be careful, because sometimes "savings" can be deceiving, because some places prices are jacked up. You will eventually know when you get a good deal. I have been keeping track of my spending. I went from $500 on a family of 5 to $380 last month (and got more and better things). I am trying to be careful not to overspend and buy things that are good deals, but not necessary and still stay in my budget. I find I spend more the first couple of weeks, then try to get only really good deals the last few weeks. I would be happy at $300, but once diapers and wipes are gone, then I want it even better!!

Very true Sara...I am glad to hear that you are down to 380. I am really interested to see where I end up this month since I have plenty of diapers and wipes to make it through. I now have a great stockpile of "personal items" so now I am hoping only to buy things that are free or almost... along with my regular goceries. PS...I am so irritated with Walmart now, I am going to Meijer next week!!
