Monthly Spending – August 2020

Here are all of my expenses for the last month!  I only planned on buying produce this month to spend less time in stores.  However, I wanted something at my favorite grocery store, and I decided to stock up on almost everything I usually buy there since it’s not on my normal route.  I’m so glad I did because so many things were on sale!  My bulk spending included two loaves of bread (for freezer), four boxes of cereal, two bags of corn chips, two cartons of milk (for freezer), two boxes of potato flakes, and twelve bottles of wine.  Those are my only notes for the month.
