We were still in the RV for most of July, and then at the end of the month, we went away to our 'working vacation' in the trailer - Ha! But overall it was a good month, especially spending-wise. I definitely bought more convenience foods than I like, but sometimes you just have to do the best with the money, space, and time that you have. I was able to stock-up on a LOT of great deals like diapers, produce, meat, and sunscreen, all while staying under budget! August will be a little crazy with two vacations, and lots of work in between, but I am hoping to have a little wiggle room in the budget come September for some apples and tomatoes to can. I LOVE being able to open a jar of home-canned tomatoes in January, delicious! Okay, so enough rambling, we're here to discuss the grocery budget -- below is my wrap-up for my July spending...
