(Pat’s BBQ burnt ends for my sister’s birthday last week)
For those of you are new to my blog I write these weekly plans to help me spend less (I kinda of love grocery shopping, yea I know I’m weird), to save time and to try and help us eat in more often. Also I love knowing what other people eat so I thought it would be fun to share. For a while I’ll be adding my plans for what greens I’ll be eating since one of my resolutions is to build a habit of introducing more green veggies into our diet. Maybe some day it’ll be so normal for us that I won’t have to mention them any more.
We got a substantial, pay cut (well from hubby’s pay, we try not to count on too much from me but that obviously is changing). It was expected as the legislature lamely cut the rate at which support coordinators for people with disabilities are paid. But it’s one thing to expect a cut and another for it to actually kick in. I worked out a budget that is tight but hopefully doable using one of the forms from Dave Ramsey’s site. So all that said the biggest cut by far was in the food department both the groceries and eating out catergories were slashed. We will see how it goes.

We’re at the same boat. but you seem much more organized than me which I think is a very important key with successful savings.
Good luck with it!! (and Bon Appétit!! your menu look delicious!)
That’s a great idea to stay organized, and not end the week with left over, unused groceries!! I tend to make a huge meal with hopes that it will last me most of the week (I’m a student, so obviously I don’t have growing mouths to feed :)
YAY for Pat’s! Boo for pay cuts :(
