I don’t know about you, but anytime I throw those extra few items into my grocery cart to “try,” I end up going over my grocery budget by about $20 a week. Add this up all year long and that’s $1,040 we’re wasting on things we don’t need and rarely or never end up using! What could you do with an extra $1,000 a year? Save for your kids college fund? Pay off debt to live financially free? Save for a family trip to make lifelong memories?
Share with me below! I'll start. We are capping our weekly grocery budget at $200 (this include household and personal items like toilet paper, makeup, body wash, etc.) for our family of 4. Stretching meals that use similar ingredients and sticking hardcore to my grocery list have been lifesavers. We are doing this to save towards our goals of paying off Everett's specialist bills from our pregnancy with him, and build our emergency savings back up. Some weeks I have to delete things from my cart that I felt we "needed" to stay under budget, and it hurts but it's so worth it to acquire this goal of being debt free! // Kristin is planning her meals in the Seasonal Meal Planner!
