- I took advantage of a few caselot sales in April to stock up. Love those caselots!
- The Bambina had a major meltdown with the homemade babyfood, so I've been continuing to buy storebought for a while. Hopefully that will end soon!
- I ran out of prenatals (which are sort of expensive) and had to buy more. Luckily I found a decent deal and stocked up enough to last me for another 9 months or so, so that will be off my spending radar for a while.
The biggest chunk this month, however, was spent on impromptu grocery shopping trips when I took dinner to someone in my neighborhood spur of the moment and didn't have time to match up coupons. (See? The planning makes a huge difference!) But it feels good to help other people, and as a mom I know sometimes having a meal brought in can be such a blessing!
So I don't mind going over budget in this way. I keep my spending down on things I need enough to be able to help others out with things they need. Definitely a win-win.
Spent in April: $138.28
Saved in April: $423.17 (75%)
How did you all do this month?
