Maybe it's that I'm too busy Christmas shopping, maybe the sales just suck, or maybe I'm just lazy, but I haven't been hitting the grocery/drug stores with my normal gusto. I need to update the challenge because I've spent another $10 or so, but I've only spent around $140 this month, whereas normally by this time, I've spent nearly twice that amount! Maybe my stockpile is finally coming into play, I dunno, but I'm liking it!

I'm with you Jess, and I blame it on bad sales. I have been using my stockpile cuz I have found nothing else to buy. I have to go this weekend and get some essentials, but still nothing that jumps out at me. and my budget is almost cut in half again, so I need good deals

I get that blah, in the funk, don't really want to shop feeling now and then... I have been in a hurry to make sure I have plenty, though, for after the baby. I don't look forward to the first trip to the store with Madeline and little bit together! It's going to be crazy.

I think it's the sales too! I've spent a little over half of my budget for the month but in the last few months I've dropped about $135 off of the budget, so I think I'm doing okay. I know for me I have to really want a deal at this point bc getting the kiddo in and out of the car in icy, snowy, rainy and very cold weather is just not as appealing as getting him out when it's a nice sunny 80 degree day!
