Update on goals

So I did better with some goals than with others. Cooking has been really fun and I have even found some great new dinner recipes. 

But I wanted to take a minute to write and write about the savings goals. Well, I saved a lot, but bought a lot to put in to our 3 month supply. Soooo.... it worked but didn't. I got some great deals like 10 boxes of Kelloggs cereal for 50 cents each and 6 Jumbo packs of Huggies diapers for only $20 (normally would be $60). I am just saying that it wasn't wasted, but it was spent.

But for the month of September I am really going to cut back. Benton is getting bigger and will soon need a new car seat. My goal is to cut back on our budgeted items to come up with enough to buy the car seat. Now, before I go any further let me explain something. We do have savings that we could buy it with, but what it the point of saving if you spend it? We also have a discretionary budget each month for such items but I want {not need} to try to come up with $100 this way.

We will see how it goes.

*Update* We did it, we saved $100 for the car seat. yay
