I know it's a short month and all but that didn't keep me from going $31.00 over. I'm proud of this though because before "coupon awareness" my little family of 4 was throwing down 6 - 700 a month! We felt fine with it at the time because we were building up our food storage, but the "awareness" has allowed us to keep up the storage on half the budget! Amazing! I always think of Hilary Swank (LOL). I heard her in an interview once say that she can't throw away coupons because it's like throwing away money. How true that is! There are also areas where I want to spend more for a certain quality, like apples and skin care. I feel like all this money I'm saving is entitling me to some of my expensive "needs". :);)Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!
