Monthly Spending Summary (May)

Well, I was just a little over budget again and was feeling a bit discouraged.  Then I realized that the last couple of months have been 5 week months which always makes it harder to stay under budget.  But the next 2 months are only 4 week months so I’m really hopeful that I’ll be able to get back on track!  Plus we’re already halfway through June and I’ve only spent just barely half of our grocery budget, so that is encouraging.  And this week and next don’t look like big buying weeks.

Not much else of interest.   You’ll see all the boring specific figures below.  Oh, one thing that I thought was interesting was that I saved almost $40 more than I spent this month!  It’s always crazy when I actually do the math and see how much I saved because honestly, I would never guess it to be as high as it is.  All those little coupons and sale savings do really add up!
