WalMart Total $91.94


Dog Food $17.91

Vet (special dog food for my allergic golden) $32

Monies set aside:
For iguana veggies: $10
For staples: $20
For impulse buys: $15
For laundry at the laundromat: $20

Total for December's household expenses:

I can't wait till February. My husband comes home from Iraq and can fix my washing machine, so I can cut out that $20 at the laundromat. Yay! Not to mention, I get my husband back too. What a bargain!

I spend a lot on my dogs. They both eat Royal Canin dog food. I have to be careful what is around my golden retriever, because he's highly allergic to many ingredients, to Royal Canin's Limited Ingredient Diet is about the only safe thing for him. So that's why our monthly dog food is so high.

I didn't need any cleaning stuff this month. I stocked up on washing soda, baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, amonia, fels naptha, and castile bar soap last month.

I still have a bunch of meat and other ingredients in the house, too.

All in all, pretty well done, I think.
