It's been a while since I've done a check of the budget - between the pending baby, hubby's car accident, and a bunch of family craziness I've been kinda winging it. The bills are all getting paid, so I know I'm not too far off track!!
I ran the spending report for July so far - and I am a bit over my $200 goal - total spent so far is $235.77, but that includes a rather large stock-up trip where I had to buy diapers, wipes, baby wash and paper goods. Those only come around every other month so I should be closer to goal next month.
Right now I have 15 prepared dinners in the freezer, most of which will leave us with a good amount of leftovers. I also have over 30 meals' worth of uncooked meat in there too, as well as a lot of frozen veggies. Depending on the meat sales, I may try for one more meat stock up purchase, especially if I can find one more OAMC dish to whip up.
I am really curious to see what having another baby will do to the budget - I know that diapers and toiletries will jack up the budget a little but I'll be nursing so until we get to solid food stages the overall change should be small. The Boy Wonder is starting to show interest in the potty so I may not be buying 2 sets of diapers for long! What was your experience when you added to your brood? Did you find it hard to adjust the budget?
