Here is how some of the fabs are doing…

Monica: Feeding a family of 4

Monthly grocery budget: $150

Spending for December: $105.47
Savings for December:  $390.33

Year to date spending: $1,515.86

I had a great trip to Albertsons with my double coupons and stocked up on Chex cereal for only $1! I also got some goodies for Christmas at Fred Meyer. I only spend about $25! But on Christmas morning when I realized the roast I bought for dinner was still frozen in the fridge I sent the husband out to Albertsons the only grocery store open in town and he came home with an $80 prime rib. Yikes! Good thing I  have been under budget this month.

Becky: Feeding a family of 3.5

Monthly grocery budget: $200

Spending this week: $96.65
Savings this week: $144.97

Had to buy some necessities this week, so I spent a little more than I wanted to, but I’m still under budget for the year!
