This Weeks shopping

OK I have to admit that my $200 a month budget is not working out so well for me so I will be upping it to $250 a month. I will update the totals on all of my previous posts. Just so you know I still went over that budget for January but I think that $250 a month is going to be doable for me if I just keep working on it. (I have got to learn to walk away from some deals to stay in budget and this is going to be very hard for me.) I must also admit that we ate out this weekend and went to a movie but since this was a planned outing the money came from our entertainment budget.

I went to the store again last week but I don't have a picture of all that I bought but my total was $42.32
This morning I ran to the grocery store and I should have everything that I need for the next 2 weeks.(I will try desperately to stay out of the stores) Here is the run down
