Our spending budget this month is $526.69.
That works out to an average of $16.99 a day.
Spending as of today is at $393.11. This leaves $133.58 for the next thirteen days. I have planned no spends tomorrow and Wednesday so the $133.58 should technically be for eleven days.
Only $219 of this month's spending has been on groceries ($10.95 a day). I've spent $52 on clothes for little Abe this month (technically his dad spent $9.54 but I'm not calling that "his" spending so it's in the regular budget (how could any good father pass up really cool clearanced Star Wars clothing after all)). I purchased about four or five months worth of toilet paper ($30.22), spent about $50 on the dogs, and there are a few other odds and ends in there as well.
If I stick to purchasing food with the remaining budgeted monies then we're a little above our $12 a day average on food spending. So, it looks like I should be able to stick to this month's budget pretty easily if I stop buying other things... except we're going to need another bag of dog food and I'm planning to buy laundry detergent and dish washer soap.
