August Month End Review


So I was DEFINATELY waaaaaaay over budget for August.  However, I dont feel too bad as $140 of my budget was spent on fast food and FAIR FOOD ..oh yeah, expensive ..but every greasy bite was worth it.   Plus I also had a ton of family in!!  For One and a half weeks our household doubled in size. My sister Tiffany, her hubby and their 4 kids came –  shall I do the math for you–4 adults and 8 heard me right. It was a crazy week!  Then the next week my other sister Ashleigh, her hubby and their 2 kids came.  So for 2 and a half weeks I fed tons of extra guests. Thus the massive increase in the budget.  I would do it all over again too though to have them come and visit.  It was a blast.  

Here are my totals for the year so far: Not too bad still for my family of 6!
(although this month really kicked up my average)
