August Spending

My August spending...um...well...it was over budget.  I know.  I know, that is not good.  Two months in a row now. 
I am hopeful about the rest of the year coming in under budget.  So here are the facts:

Total Retail:  $1,867.95
Total OOP:  $428.91
Savings 87%

We have joined a local CSA and will start getting vegetables from them instead of the grocery store starting this month.  That comes out of my grocery budget so I will have less to play with in the months to come. 
We are also considering building a chicken coop and I am pretty sure that the birds' maintenance will also come out of my budget since the dogs' bits and pieces do.  Then all I will need is a cow and we'll be set...  :)
