Average Grocery Savings 49%
Average Household 80%
I would like to increase the average for groceries. I'm working more using the Grocery Game to plan my menus to keep costs low. I have a feeling after my gall bladder is removed, I will have to limit my fat intake and opt for leaner meats a lot more fruits and veggies.
Utilities $226 The biggest portion of that was electricity. I have been slowly increasing the thermostat up (currently around 76 most of the time)
Gas $225 We replaced the fuel filter on the F150 yesterday so hopefully it will start to get better gas milage than what it has been. Thing 1's recitals are done, so the long treks back and forth to rehearsals are no more. We are planning to stick close to home this month(especially since I will have surgery)
Hopefully I won't have a heart attack after I receive the bill for the surgery. This is one reason why I have put it off for so long.
