I know I go on and on about what a great budgeters we are, and how we stick to it and we don’t buy many groceries, but it just flew out the window this week! I said to myself, “Self, you have GOT to stop buying food.”
For, you see — the winter months are the times that things you can stock up on go on sale. Cream soups, canned veggies, the whole nine yards. So, yes — I have stocked up.
But, then I go overboard.
I mean, I don’t have it planned out to the miligram, but I’m fairly sure we could go a year with the food we have around here, and it wouldn’t be tortillas with rice and beans either.
So, I’m putting us on a little spending fast. I want to keep the grocery budget under 40 each week. I need to decide what’s REALLY a good deal, that we REALLY need and then end it there.
Again, there’s a fine line between preparedness and hoarding, and I walk it…
Sadly, I don’t look good in a leotard and tights….
