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.

It's insane.

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....


  1. Just think of it as being able to have more to share when disaster does strike. :)

  2. I could really use your advice on keeping groceries to $40 a week. I don't think I've ever come close to that!

  3. I too, am impressed that you can keep your family of 5 on $40 worth of groceries a month. How do you do it??
