For almost a year now, Nick and I have typed up a budget together every month. We have been able to save more than we ever had the previous 5 years. In an effort to cut back on our allocated grocery & gas costs, I decided to come up with weekly menus. I knew this would be good for us when I took a look at how much we spend on eating out each month. This isn't a new idea but I have finally started to enact it, which is sometimes the hardest part of changing a habit! We stopped by the grocery store last night to buy groceries for three meals a day for the entire week and only spent $65. Woohoo! It's simple things like this that make me giddy. Nick just shakes his head at me and says I'm a dork. Well, this dork is going to be saving us money honey. Not to mention how much better/healthier we will be eating!
Can anyone out there relate to my love of trying to be frugal, and maybe getting a little too excited about it? :)
What are some of your favorite low cost and healthy meals?
