Crunching Numbers – November

Novembers numbers are in. How did we do?

If you remember, I started keeping track in March. Previously my grocery bill used to be $225-$275 each week.

Well I knew I was doing well but I really had no idea just how much I had been saving these past 4 weeks. I am quite a happy person right now as I have finally been able to get my numbers under $50 per week. Although I think that we eat fairly healthy, my new goal is to buy more fish which can be expensive. I certainly don’t mind going over $50 each week in order to do that. It’s just nice to know I will be able to do it and stay under my $75 budget.

Here are my current numbers since I started keeping track in March:

March:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $567.83
Avg $128.24 per week

April:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $380.57
Avg $95.14 per week

May:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $425.02
Avg $106.25 per week

June:
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $323.34
Avg $80.84 per week

July
Total spent out of pocket for the month: $288.99
Avg $72.25

August
Total Spent out of pocket for the month: $288.08

September

So to sum up our budget, for the last 9 months I have saved over $6000. That is over $665 each month. Click here to see how I got started using coupons and saving.

My grocery budget week goes from a Friday to Thursday as that is when we get paid. So this month’s groceries were determined from Friday 10/23 through Thursday 11/20. Next month are from 11/21 – 12/17.
