Monthly Spending Summary (June)
If you want to see exactly what I purchased, check the posts under My Deals for more details.
The biggest news this month is that I finally managed to get under budget again! I cannot begin to tell you how good this feels after months of struggling with being quite a bit over budget. I’m going to definitely have to keep working at it though, since I’ll be buying several bushels of peaches, apples and some corn to preserve. That always takes a chunk out of my budget. But I’m determined to keep trying to work at it!

* $4.19- sold a skincare product that I got for free on Ebay. This was my profit after all shipping costs etc.
* $7.29- for a Staple Easy Rebate….bought printer paper that was free after the rebate
* $85.21- this was my gas savings that I earned through my grocery purchases at Giant. (Basically I bought a bunch of different things that were basically free or really inexpensive after the gas savings promotion that they offered.)
