This month we get $381.61 to feed ourselves, plus the $303.27 cushion from previous months, for a total of $684.88 of possible spending during May. Although, I have no intention of spending it all. I'm still eating from our freezer and pantry and working on saving money, some of which will be used to help restock.
What we ate: nachos supreme and spinach salad, homemade split pea soup, grilled Ahi tuna, leftover pizza, pasta with seafood sauce, slow cooker roast beef with vegetables, grilled hotdogs with baked beans and deviled eggs, Spanish omelette with chorizo, chorizo and white bean Mexican soup, grilled ham steak with noodles Alfredo, salami with ham and cheese sandwich and popcorn, Cincinnati Four Way Chili, grilled ribs, Greek appetizers

We spent $40.08 at restaurants the first half of this month.
For food we spent $57.90.
The total of the two was $97.98 over the last 16 days for an average of $6.12 per day.
When all is said and done, we now have $586.90 of monthly funds and of cushion and I'm hoping I can keep most of it for restocking because that time is approaching.
