February 2012 Challenge

So,  I think I know what's going to happen with my 2012 challenge...  I am going to get to the end of the month and have no money left over and then go blow the next months budget when the month turns. Today I went to Walmart to get the much needed groceries. Now, mind you this will cover the rest of this week and next week. I also bought a BUNCH of cat food that doesn't count towards my budget. What killed it this week was the great price I found on Stouffer's. I think these will be my "I don't feel like cooking" meals. I figure at $3-$5 a meal, it was worth it.

IAMS Cat food:
$4.76 2 lb bag
Used 6 $3/1 Iams, any size
