So I didn’t know it, but I’ve been following this advice for the last few weeks:
Live your life first. Write your blog later.
I wasn’t intentionally following this advice, mind you. No, it was just out of sheer desperation. I’ve been sick for what seems like a month, baseball season is upon us (as is recital season), and a myriad of other things have kept me from writing. I’ve felt guilty about it, but decided that all my avid readers would give me a break. (That’s a little sarcasm for your Monday – wait…it’s not Monday? Where in the week am I?)
So, on April 10th, I finally finished our April budget. We’ll scrape by with an extra $.39. Our Major Issue (as I noted in the comments of a previous post) is that we were only able to budget $300 for Groceries for the rest of the month. That’s going to be a challenge for us – I think we usually spend about $300 on milk and cereal ALONE in a regular month.
So I have two questions for you:
- Is our normal grocery amount excessive compared to your grocery budget?
- What are your tips for saving money on groceries (besides growing our own tomatoes, which we’re in the process of)?
