Grocery Budget Update - June


This month I squeaked in under budget with 26¢ to spare.  I began the month with a $42.22 deficit.  Now I have a deficit to carryover of $41.96.  I'll just continue chipping away at it.


Our nonfood items came in a at $23.74.  I stocked up on bath soap, dish soap, more T. P. because it was a killer deal, and tissues.  I also bought canned cat food, litter, and some toiletries.



Here is the list of all the food items I bought last month.  The items in red are my stock up items:
