Frugal Friday Report

On Friday of each week, I plan to summarize a list of my weekly spending including how much I saved and savings percentage.  I am hoping to show how much I am saving and improving each week by using my new savy shopping skills!

I'm not sure if my report should be titled "Frugal" looking at my spending this week...  I went nearly $40 over my newly set budget of $60/week.  Ahhh!  The main problem is that I went to the grocery stores twice in the same week (the week before I had only made a small trip).  I also bought my last order of diapers at Target.com (hopefully!), a huge bag of cat food and a large package of ground beef.  Excuses, Excuses...  :)

Here's what my week looked like:

On a brighter note, I did have a fairly high savings percentage of 66% ($188.26 total savings)...  I am praying for a budget-friendly upcoming week!
