Laundry detergent, cleaners, vitamins, etc. comes from one budget, edible food from another.
We’re still tweaking our food and household items budgets and I’m not sure if we are now under budgeted for groceries or if I overspent buying ingredients to make cookies this month. We’re giving cookies to scout leaders and others this year and I had to buy lots of things that I don’t normally buy all at once… flour, 6 pounds of butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. We ran out of grocery money earlier this week and I had to buy eggs with my spending money.
I now know to add an additional $25 to the food budget in December. Hopefully I’ll remember that next year.
