She has an $800 ANNUAL budget for herself, her three daughters, and two dogs.
According to her blog, this $800 covers:
1. all food
2. all HBA (health and beauty items)
3. all dog food
4. all eating out
5. all cleaning supplies
6. all coupons I pay for (the paper)
That is some amazing coupon-ing / frugality / self-discipline right there!
$800 would last me (one smallish girl with a big appetite and a deep love for all foods delicious) around 4 months if I’m really good and limit my dining out to 4-5 times a month.
$800 MAY last me 5 months if I really hunker down, but that hasn’t happened yet.
I’m going to read her blog mostly because I’m curious, and maybe I’ll get a couple of tips that I can incorporate into my life.
