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.
Now it's time to add the Big Y trip I made yesterday too.
