This month our budget went back up to $200, which feels like a million after doing a pantry challenge. And the month only had 4 weeks which made it nice too. We continued to work on eating certain things down from our freezers and pantries, and that enabled me to restock/stock up on other things. We also earned some money from the flea market we did on the first, I did a large listing on Amazon, and I worked really hard every week to earn those Swag Buck gift cards. Here's how we ended up this month...
Week #1: $65.53 OOP, Earned $5 Target GC, $13 ECB's, $6.75 from Amazon, and $5 Amazon GC from Swagbucks
Week #2: $52.15 OOP, Earned $18 ECB's, $6 MIR, and $5 Amazon GC from Swagbucks
Week #3: $42.21 OOP, Earned $26 ECB's, $3.50 Staples Rebate, $5 Amazon GC from Swagbucks, $4.08 CVS Gift Card, and $20.30 from Amazon
