Since we are headed to Disney at the end of April, I will be hoarding funds for extra FUN! My plan is this: no more than $20/week on groceries (pretty much bread, milk, eggs, yogurt, and produce.) Since we are gone the last week of April, that means I should only spend $60 for the entire month. Since my monthly budget is $220, that leaves me with $160 for FUN.
I know me and I know that this will be a challenge. My plan is to completely avoid looking at the grocery ads to not be tempted to stock up on a big sale. I will shop one store per week only (maybe Meijer or Aldi.)
Walk with me and see how we do. There is an awful lot of pantry to eat around here! :)
