Last week I mentioned that I had started a new budget using the Budget Envelopes app for my iPad. I finally had to break down and increase the grocery budget because after the last price increase in milk and other dairy products, I just wasn't making my target amount. I also wasn't doing a very good job tracking how much I had spent and making adjustments in my menu. Next week is my last week of this pay period, and I will be very interested to see where I end up in my grocery cost for the month. I will be very happy if I end up with any money left in my envelope!
