TOTAL BUDGETED: $225
TOTAL SPENT AS OF 3/14: $139.03 (a large chunk of this was gas)

I can already tell you that we're going to go over our goal limit, because I will be driving out of town this weekend to see my mom and stepdad at the cabin, and next week to see A at a golf tournament, and gas is not cheap, my friend. But at least we're not spending money on other stuff in addition to all of this, right? Right??
Besides, the pantry, fridge and deep freeze are already in better shape. So there's that!
