We keep a budget for how much money we get to eat out for lunch - we each get $80 per month. But no, we don't budget for groceries or any other expenses.

For the first six months of this year I banned my wife from buying any clothes or accessories (like nail polish). And she banned me from buying any playstation 2 games. That has helped out a lot.

I also got a good bonus check in February and a good tax refund check in March. So that helped out too.
