Following posting my tips and how I menu plan, I altered my strategy just a bit. I have just recently started shopping each week as oppose to a large grocery trip every 2 weeks. This has drastically cut down on my cost and helped me to keep closer to my plan. I was running into issues with the large grocery trip because if I had something come up I would have food that would go bad possibly or not get used. I felt like I would also buy things I thought I may need when in fact I really did not.
By shopping weekly, I’m able to plan out a few days at a time, and cut out the unnecessary grocery trips during the week. My husband is well aware I will only go to the store 1 time a week now. This way I’m not ask to go get this or that every other day at the store. I love it. It’s almost freeing for me!
