I love new beginnings. I shall make some goals for this very fresh month of February:
- Get back to clipping coupons! Check! Did that and used some today! Best finds include deodorant for 98 cents, free microwavable campbells chicken noodle soup, free chapstick, Oikos yogurts for 62 cents, full size Digiorno pizzas for $3, 100 count box of Kleenex for 49 cents, Rotel 48 cents/can, and Sargento shredded cheese $2 each. Ok so maybe I could have found better deals or more deals, but this is just a start.
- Make a weekly meal plan and post it on the fridge! I pass by the local Farmers Market every evening on my way home from work. There is no excuse for buying grocery store meat and vegetables anymore. I'd rather support the local farmers when I can. Plus... FRESH MEAT!!!
These two things should help with the budget. We are finally able to iron out a family budget, having now paid our very second mortgage payment ever. Yay!
