I adjusted the budget to $300 a month a bit to early I think. I was way below this past month, but that's a good thing! I am sure that I will have months in the near future that I make up for being under budget this month.
Here is how I did:
Subtotal (after sale/clearance prices): $1062.53
Manufacturer Coupons: $376.31
Store Coupons (includes ECBs/RRs/Gift Cards): $485.53
Savings (including tax): 79.6%
So yeah, even after the $33 tax, I was still $85 below budget. This means without including tax, I was below budget by $117.
