So I did go to the grocery store last night and I bought one last thing before the end of the month.
3/30 FM $14.90
Turkey Breast $7.11 (1.29/lb)
Pie Crust $1.79
Frozen Spinach $1.50 (4x$1.50 = $6)
= $14.90 Monthly Total $820.79!
Bringing out monthly grand total $820.79 for groceries for our family of 4 and with TONS of food in the freezer. We spent $112.72 eating out for the month and $86.82 on cleaning stuff. I plan on buying dog food, vitamins from costco later this week thinking Thursday or Friday for April. I'm going to make a list because it's on sale and I have some backup under the sink but I like to have at least a 6 months supply usually. We also spent $167.14 on alcohol. We need to buy next month some champagne (mimosas for easter brunch) and vodka.
Today was DH's 3rd payday of March. Very excited. He got paid $5554.66 today and this is not part of our normal budget. So what did I do? Well I saved every penny of it. I moved $5600 to our Roth/Savings Fund. I also moved $1200 to our Sink funds, $1000 to Property taxes which we used to escrow and $6500 (check of $6488.78 escrow from JPMC) and tomorrow our mortgage is paid $3850.
Our current balances
Checking Cap 1 $5309
Roth/Savings $8600 for year (on pace to save $16k, love to hit $36k for year)
Sink Funds $2400 (budgeting $720/month i'm a little short and might move more)
Property Taxes $8500 (on target and paying $5500 4/30)
BofA $6785 (earmarked for paying off Chase card below)
Chime $400 (with 2 $75 bonuses thanks for referral!) PM me if you want referral link
I owe $5700 on our chase card closing 4/6/21. We are going away this weekend and I think we may spend $1000 on eating out for 4 days most meals. I'm being a bit overly generous because I'd rather not feel bad for 4/3-4/6.
Tomorrow I'll do a wrap up of spending for month and new monthly goals.
