Monthly Totals Breakdowns (Dec 2008)

I will more than likely not be going to Walgreens/CVS or the Grocery Store until later this week...Probably will be in the new year! Here are my deals from December! Hope you got in on some of the good deals!

Grocery Store Budget $250.00
I know I did not do a very good job of keeping track of my receipts from this month. I checked our bank account and found that we were around $220.00 (rounded) and I know that we spent about $5 more dollars in cereal...etc. So I'm saying we probably were around $225. This is just unbelievable considering we had family in town for a week and I cooked almost every night. I pulled from my stockpile for most of the meals! I'm just amazed....and so excited that I have been able to keep under budget and still have decent meals/prepared meals on the table every night (except on Sat...for the most part!)

Sometimes I think it's crazy that I have 11 boxes of unopened cereal, 4 boxes of opened cereals...but 13 of them cost me less than $5 oop! However, my growing daughter loves having cereal for breakfast and she can eat almost 2 bowls half of the time (granted they are kiddie bowls...but the cereal goes fast!) I just can't believe what I used to pay for everything! I can't thank some of the frugal blogging women enough for the amazing encouragement and deals they work so hard on to provide for us that seek it. =) Here are my drug store finds!
