July Monthly Spending Round Up

Well here is how we came out in JULY...if you remember Justin was suppose to take care of meals and shopping, but we decided about a week into in (since I had already made a meal plan for the first two weeks of the month we would just wait until August for him to try out his little experiment!
I have also been taking a break from couponing for the months of June, July, and now August. I am very happy with how this month turned out especially not using coupons for the most part...maybe I used a few a CVS....
I also decided I would not add in my CVS and Walgreens runs to my monthly grocery budget...but keep a tight rein on the spending and make sure it is only getting stuff we need and will use...

Walmart $50.12 (18 items)
I have to say $25.73 of that money was in supplies to make blueberry jam......
Aldi $71.73 (48 items)
Mostly camping items since we camped 3 weekends in July!
Kmart $14.45 (12 items)
Kroger $8.97 (3 HUGE bags of cheese)
Total for JULY $145.27 number of itmes 81
My CVS spending has been GREAT...CVS is finally rolling out some worthy deal this past month, and continues with great back to school deals this month!!!!!
$15.97 oop (I stocked up on printer paper which is where most of this expense came from)
BEST PART!!!!!!!! I got 61 items in July for basically nothing because I have LOTS of ECB's I have been rolling over on all the deals......after all that is the name of the game!
