It was a small trip to Costco this month because I went over my $100.00 monthly budget on 2 additional trips in September. One trip was a return and the other trip was for gas so I picked up 2 items on sale. Fortunately, we are so close to Costco, that these extra trips don't make a dent in the gas tank!
I spent $72.30 this month.

In February, I switched to a vegetarian diet and my husband eats meat on occasion. 2 out of our 3 children who still live at home eat chicken. 1 out of those 2 eat beef. So my meal planning is always fun!!!!
