January Budget Review

I have always watched A Thrifty Mom share her weekly budget review and have never kept track of mine. I kept track of January and the amount I would have spent before sales and coupons was:
$872.19. I spent $408.71 this month including adding to the stockpile and getting 12 cans of macaroni for our food storage. How did you do? I used to get frustrated seeing that A Thrify Mom could even cut that in half and spend about $200 a month, but then I realized that she lives in Idaho where sales are about $.50-$1.00 better in her stores and they get Albertson's doublers making a lot of her items for free and we do not get those coupons.
