We need to see where our money is going and that means budget time. Starting with Grocery buying. Today I inventoried the freezer and we have plenty of "Food" frozen. I think enough Meat,Vegetables and Fruit to carry us through the next months. I am planning meal menus by the week and trying my best to budget what money is spent on food. It seems we go to the grocery store a bit too often, and although we set out to get stuff needed on our list we are bringing home more than we went for. I have checked the pantry and will organize that tomorrow. We certainly are not going to go hungry. I am making a goal to spend less than $100 a month grocery shopping. We do shop for bargains and Safeway prices are usually higher than our neighborhood "Sherms Market". We are not skimping I think we are being more frugal and since we both like to cook we can share the duty. Eat more left overs and start using the food we have canned & frozen. Today is the start of a Great Plan....but
I see a problem brewing if we decide we are not in the mood to have what is planned for the meal on any given day. I think Flexibility is the key here and making sure we three well balanced meals. Gosh maybe we will lose some pounds around our midsections if we can comply.
