It may look like I spent a ton on food since I shared my budget last week, and that's because I did! The grocery store had chicken on sale and I was nearly, nearly out, so I stocked up! I spent about $40 on groceries and about $25 was just on the chicken. It will last me quite a while. I left myself with only about $33 for food for the rest of the month though, so it will be tight! I guess it will just challenge me to mostly just use food I already have in my freezer and pantry. I also didn't go to the grocery store over the weekend like I normally do, I didn't go until the middle of this last week, so because of that this next weekend's grocery run should be very minimal, if I go at all.

I shared last week that I am trying to get a ball-park figure on what my car repairs are going to cost me (tires, turn signal) so I can be prepared when they have to be fixed.

I don't think there are any other surprises in my budget, but if you have questions, just comment below.

Meditating/Happiness Update: I am still writing Happiness slips for my jar each night, but I haven't been so good about meditating. I need to get back on track with this goal.

Budgets looking good. I too have to eat what in the freezer because I've spent all my food budget.
