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 CHILDREN..yeah..you 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)
