I'll Show You My Budget If You Show Me Yours

What the buster! I’m over budget!!!!  I had an extra hard time with my grocery budget this month.  By extra hard time I guess I mean, I went over budget by quite a bit for February.  How much is quite a bit to me you ask?  About a hundred bucks.  Food is my weakness!  Clearly right?  I write a blog about food.  Seriously though I love food.  When I’m at the grocery store, I’m a sucker for food in cute packaging.  Drinks in pretty bottles, snacks in cool containers and anything that says it’s 100% something pretty much makes me want to buy it.  Yes, I know I’m being conned by clever marketing, but I’m okay with that.  I say conned, but I mean not really, my grocery budget is very modest VERY VERY modest.  By modest I mean "dang can I have a dollar for some kool-aid packets?!"  So, I can’t afford to be conned.  I don’t want to make this sound like I’m complaining about my grocery budget, though.  I am choosing that budget life.  I started budgeting the Dave Ramsey way back in 2010.  At the time I had 20,000 dollars worth of student loans and no money in savings.  Today I’m debt-free except for the mortgage.  Going over budget for February is a big deal because I know that I never want to go back to living paycheck to paycheck. So for March I’ll go ahead and put that Simply Lemonade with Mango back on the shelf and make sure I stick to my budget.
