So, I thought I was doing SO WELL making grocery lists and menu planning the past couple months. I found out this morning that it has been a big, fat FAILURE. I make the list, and I am pretty good about sticking to the list ( 2 or 3 impulse buys a trip) but I've still gone over the grocery budget abotu $40 a month. This morning I figured out why.
I don't really CHECK to see what I already have on hand before I write the list. This would be how I have 3 half eaten boxes of cereal, 2 bags of raisins and 4 boxes of fruit snacks sitting in my cabinets. GAH!! I checked my others and found that I really don't need to buy dry goods this payday. Maybe 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes for spaghetti but that's it. Maybe I'll actually stay within budget this payday. My freezer is about the same right now.
Oh well, onward and upward.
