I have decided to work with a cash grocery budget. I find that it is so easy to go over budget on food when you are constantly popping into the store for this and that. This is the second month that I have used cash and there have been some growing pains.
My goal this month is to be under budget.
To accomplish this I have done a big costco shop on mainly meat and I will be doing a big cook tomorrow. My friend and I are getting together to cook 16-20 meals.
I am also going to make a menu plan each week. I am hoping that with all the meat and pre-cooked meals that I can make my weekly budget be $50 or less a week. I think this is more than do-able, especially when my grocery budget has to allow for diaper purchases.
What do you do to keep grocery costs down?
