This is a bit late due to my son's ear infection, a foot of snow on the ground, and getting used to my new computer. (Refurbished Dell laptop, highly recommended.)

Week 1 Total: $78.70
Week 1 Savings: $48.95

Since the new budget is $350 for the month, each week should be under $87.50. This week, we're under by $8.80. Not a bad start! We still have tons of food in our pantry, taking up space in my dining room and playroom, and in two freezers.
