How are you doing on your grocery budget this week? Our pantry was pretty full after last week’s shopping trips, so I made a quick run to Publix yesterday and that was it for the week. We’re eating a lot from what we already have on hand, and I’m working really hard to be resourceful with what’s in the kitchen rather than making an extra trip to the store.
Guess what? It works!
We spent just $23.42 this week at Publix (while saving $27 – not all that exciting but I’m still keeping life simple around here), and I may use some of our extra cash this week to pick up fresh fruit at Sam’s Club or Aldi. So, nothing too exciting to report, but I’m thrilled to be way under our grocery budget for the week, leaving me extra moo-lah to spend on the things I really love to buy.
I’m still keeping tabs on my grocery expenses with just an envelope each week ~ you might want to do the same thing to hold yourself accountable too! I’m amazed at how much that’s helped me stay on track this year – just knowing that I’ll have to account for whatever I purchase in that envelope really makes a difference.
