I was getting my bread for almost free from a organization(20miles away) but I have now decided we are financially good and will buy it from a local outlet instead. This will save me on gas and mileage on my vehicle. I also have decided to go back to making my own bread again. I do not buy sugar filled cereal for my daughters and have not for years now. These are the things my kids like to eat. Each will decide which one they want and add a piece of fruit with it. Or sometimes they just want homemade oatmeal. One day I will learn to make these on my own and not have to deal with the plastic bags. Here in Portland Oregon they can be recycled but thats besides the point.

As you can see I beat my budget and have a little extra to stash away. You never know if I will need more milk or eggs. I might even go get the girls a Redbox movie since they are a dollar and sports were cancelled due to bad weather. My hubby is working so its a girls night in . Woot!
Another added note:For years I have been having to plan our budget due to my husband getting paid only once a month. This year they decided to pay him every two weeks and its totally screwing my budget up. So for the next few weeks its going to be trial and error with keeping on budget.
