I spent $17.74 on groceries for today and tomorrow. Today's spending leaves $5.87 for tomorrow and $12 a day from there on out. I did not buy any coffee today. I avoided the 2 liters of soda, the instant chocolate pudding that almost ended up in my cart, little snacks and clearance Easter stuff. I really wanted to buy the 99 cent bag of little oreos that I noticed were on sale but I didn't. Two days down five to go and April's budget will be officially balanced.
BONUS: As I was talking with my husband about dinner choices for tonite he reminded me that he was given several gift cards to restaurants for his birthday. You can not even believe how excited I am about eating out, not having to make dinner, being able to save the money that would have been spent on that meal, AND getting free food. I'm going to balance this months budget for sure!
