February 2015 Budget Update

February was a great month deal-wise!  I am so glad I had money leftover from January, or I would have been over budget.  After doing the pantry challenge last month, there were so many things to restock this month.  I chipped away at the list a little each week, so I could stay under budget, and will continue to do this in March.  Here's how the month worked out...
  • Week #1: $86.20 oop, Earned $11 ECB's
  • Week #2: $88.59 oop, Earned $13.75 ECB's
  • Week #3: $45.43 oop, Earned $12.60 ECB's, and $1.19 Saving Star Rebate
  • Week #4: $90.12 oop, Earned $2.75 ECB's, and $2.80 Staples Easy Rebate
Total OOP: $310.34
Total Earned: $44.09
Total Remaining from February: $2.86!!!!!
