I have a confession. I totally bagged on tracking my grocery spending this month. I got busy, misplaced a couple receipts and it was downhill from there. What I can tell you is this. I did a really good job making sure I spent as little as possible for everything I bought this month. I used a GOB of digital and paper coupons to shave even more off of the totals and there were two weeks out of the four that I didn't do any shopping at all.
But as far as the running total goes. I have no clue. This month I paid the bills, blasted my savings goals (Yay!) and used what was leftover to spend on groceries and the non food items we needed like toilet paper, tissues, quart sized food storage bags, trashcan liners, cat food, cat litter, shampoo and dish soap.

While I really like knowing, to the penny, everything I spend and on what I spend it on, I had to cut myself some slack this month and not be too hard on myself. I'm okay with the fact that I did my best and knowing I'll do better next month.

So that's where I'm at. I hope you aren't too disappointed that the usual post isn't going to happen this month. I know a lot of you really enjoy these posts. I hope my grocery post earlier this week will make up for it.
