October in Review

Blogging: I have dropped some in October with only 11 post. Just kinda of a average month. I am super late in getting this review up so hopefully things improve in November.
                                              Goal: 15 per month
Devotions: Slowly but surely, I would guess 2x a week still working toward the goal.
                                              Goal is 3 a week.

Couponing/Grocery Budgeting: My initial plan for the month was to spend $500 or less. We actually ended up on the high end of this at $715. We are continuing to eat from the freezer and did a lot of cleaning in the month of October. My plan for November to buy on sale unless we are out of the items and need something.  Which is basically what I did in October.
                                   Our Grocery Budget is set at $800 per month, this includes diapers, cleaning supplies, food and toiletries.

: We continue to take baby steps in this area. I have been consistently placing $10 each paycheck in saving so our emergency fund is growing. We also spent $700 on medical bills and began purchasing Christmas presents in the month of October not bad. In our biggest achievement, we now know the exact amount of our debt that needs to be paid off. It is a huge number for us but it will be reached   
                                 Goals in this area: Emergency fund of $1000, car fund equal to a payment of $300 each month and by January- debt free except for mortgage.

Weight-I have been exercising 1x a week this month. Better than June- September.
                          Goal to exercise 3x a week.
