I went over my July grocery budget of $150 by $2.07, but that's OK, because the cereal I bought will last well into August; I didn't mind going over by a bit because I wanted to take advantage of sales.
I broiled half of the chicken I bought and made a curry with the rest. We've been enjoying the broiled chicken with salads.
