July Budget and Online Earnings Update

Make save money onlineIt is time for a budget and online earnings update!  I am an official “work at home” mom now so our budget will be tighter than before.  My grocery/household supplies budget is $200 a month (there are four of us).  It was a small online money month, but next month will be better!
Make Money Online Update

$25 from Swagbucks (Amazon gift cards)
$14.95 from Adgitize (paypal, bloggers only. You earn more when you advertise with them and their Adgitize coupon promotion for free advertising has been extended)

I didn’t earn anything from Cashbaq, Ebates (they pay every 3 months), Mr. Rebates (I forgot to cash in!), Cashcrate ,or IRazoo this month.

Grocery and Household Budget Update:

I did great this month. I spent $177.24, which is under my $200/month budget. I will take the extra $22 to Costco to get some stock supplies (we need canned tomatoes, black beans, eggs, and milk). With the $177 I bought $379.39 in groceries and household supplies. That is a savings of 53%!!!

Week 1 – $60.80 in groceries/household supplies for $37.77
Week 2 – $54.22 for $34.60
Week 3 – $191.67 for $75.72
Week 4 – $35.46 for $20.63
Week 5 – $37.24 for $8.52

I only get one newspaper a week. I am not a major “stockpiler”. YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!!!

Good for you! I am terrible at using coupons.

Wow, how do you get so many swag bucks?! I use the toolbar, but only get a $5 paypal about once a month or so.

I've gotten better at couponing, thanks to a great coupon book set up my sister helped me with. We still spend a fortune on groceries around here though. I think the snacks kill us. I've got to find a better way to cut back!

Well done!
