|Week 6||$0.00||$18.83||not done|
We never actually got an envelope to use in a cash envelope method, but I've had no problem just putting it on the credit card and keeping a tally. Since it's a weekly budget we usually only make three shopping trips each week (produce, other groceries, and a oops we forgot/ran out of milk trip) and it's been easy enough to keep track of. There's a market near our place that offers really good deals on produce so we stock up at the beginning of the week with lots of fruits and veggies. This week we had a ton of leftovers that we needed to use up (we got about 5lbs of broccoli for $1 last week among other purchases) so we decided to skip the market.
I am currently debating if the potential "rollover" money from under spending in previous weeks will be fair game to spend later. On the one hand we've been doing pretty well without it. On the other hand it would be nice to stock up on a few basics and a small indulgence or two.
