Woman Grocery Shopping
Remember when I said that I wanted to cut my grocery budget in 2009? It is now going to be a necessity. Due to a fluke at Mike's work, his overtime did not get put on this month's check. We should get it next month (plus what he is earning this month), but in the meantime we are suddenly without almost a quarter of our income.
After a frantic, crying phone call to my best friend I calmed down enough to decide to look on this as a challenge. At least we should have a big chunk to put in savings next month, right?
For the rest of January I will be buying nothing but groceries and gas and my grocery budget will be cut in half. The girls and I are going to be in a wedding in about 6 weeks, but all expenses for that are just going to have to wait.
My next grocery shopping day will be Tuesday and I will let you know how it goes. Organization and planning are going to be so important. No more putting something in my cart without thinking. I'm sure I'll be shopping with a calculator.
