Do any of you know what you are going to have as your goal for next month? How does it compare to regular months?

I think I'll knock mine down to $325. That's $75 less than all the previous months. I'm sure I'll go over, but that's okay.

I think I'm going to put 35.00 for mine. I have been keeping it around 125 or a little higher. I will definitely need meat to get us through, and I have WIC for all the milk, cheese, and eggs we'll need, except for Maddie's milk. I have coupons for her lactaid for 1.00 off.

I am going to have $250. That's 110 less than normal and it will also even me out for August.

I'm cutting mine more than half. I regularly aim for $400 but this month I'm thinking $150.

I don't have a stockpile either so I'll go with our normal amount of $600 a month. We spend a LOT on groceries.

I keep going back and forth on this. My usual budget is $400, and I have a HUGE stockpile, so I should be able to cut it down, I'm just not sure I want to. What to do, what to do?

Mine will be the regular $400 that it always is.


... you guys should call this "Buy Less" month ... 'cuz "Nothing" = ZERO.

I never said I was buying nothing. That's impossible. I'm just buying nothing that I already have in my stockpile. And I'm trying to cut back on the food too.

I called it my "necessities-only" month. I won't buy anything except what I need. Which will be Maddie's milk (lactaid and soy) and some kind of meats to get us to the end of the month. I would love a great chicken sale somewhere...

(the last time I prayed for that, it happened. ).

I'll still have to buy milk, bread and lunchmeat for DH. Also Walgreens has naturemade vitamins BOGO next week and if that includes the prenatals I'm going to get like 4 bottles for April since I have $1 off coupons.
