how are you doing? We know Liz is kicking butt...

I'm almost out of money--I only have enough to get Maddie's milk, but I don't need anything, either. Shopping is fun, but last month I had too much fun.

How about the rest of you. How goes the spending/saving?

I'll have to look when I get home. I know I've spent about $50 but I'm not sure about my saved number. I do remember it was like 75-80% though.

I think that I have spent about $50 or so. I would have to add it up. I did the medicine deals at CVS a couple of times. I need for meats to go on sale so that I can stock up on those. Lord knows I have enough of everything else.

I've already spent almost my whole month's budget!

Course I kept it really really small this month...

I'll be spending some tomorrow. But I want to keep it around $70 for Walmart/Publix/Winn Dixie. Winn Dixie keeps mocking me and giving me a $10/$75 catalina everytime I go there. Yeah, I don't see that happening. I'm not doing CVS until the Huggies go on sale on the 14th. And WAG never has anything I want.

Spent almost $55
Saved $175 ish (76%)

I still need to go to WAG tomorrow. I want to get some Dasani water (3.99). I'll use one of my $4 RR from Advil last week. I am debating if I want to spend any money for rebate items or if I want to wait until later and see if my gift card gets reloaded.

I've spent less than $40, but I'm going to Kroger tomorrow and will probably spend between $20 and $30.

I spent nothing this week lol

We were on vacation and went shopping for the week on Sunday (which was still September) and while I probably should go get some groceries tonight I don't feel like it. We'll go grocery shopping for next week on Monday probably.
