When you do your budget, do you allow a seperate amount for cleaning supplies and for food, or do you lump them all together?

Everything goes together, though I do list it all separately.

I just do it all together. I have never had to write cleaning supplies down my shopping list, ever. I buy a ton of that stuff in "dollar" stores and when I see a really good price in the supermarket, and just use them throughout the year. I still have enough supplies to last me probably one whole year!

We actually have those two separate. we dont buy clean supplies at the supermarket so that is why they are not on the same list.

They are separate in the budget because they are an irregular purchase. I have a lot stock piled, so I rarely NEED to buy anything. I just try to buy things as the sales come up.

I lump them together. My grocery budget includes cleaning supplies, dog food, and toiletries.

We lump them together, but I make most of our cleaning products so I buy different products at different stores (baking soda and vinegar in bulk at Sams, laundry soap ingredients at Walmart, etc).
