June Grocery Budget....And Keeping Diligence In Mind

Ah, a new month.....a fresh start.....and the envelope system begins!

I decided to set the grocery budget for June at $475.  I have had all this out in cash in my little white envelope and will attempt to stay within just this amount!  (I do have another $100 I could use but I really want to put that towards emergency savings!)

Also, just an FYI:  All change generated from these trips will be going into my change jar at home.

So, yesterday I posted about the $40 I spent at the farmer's market.
