Well, not to good so far. We went to a potluck-style baby shower today. We needed to bring a dish & I didn't have time to throw anything together. I stopped at the local HF store (called New Leaf) and got a pint of pesto pasta ($10) and some snacks (I know, bad!), so I spent $20 total. The only good thing is we ate potluck food for lunch & dinner. I just checked our accounts online & it looks like dh went to Starbucks on his break ($3.65!). He works at Trader Joe's, I asked him to bring home a watermelon, I hope that's all he got!
I can't believe how little some of you spend on groceries. I always include paper goods, cleaners, etc in my total, I think I'm going to categorize things more this month. We spend a ridiculous amount
I can't possibly fathom spending as little as some of you! I do cook a lot too! I guess it's because were in California & we eat mostly organic, but we don't eat meat!
My goal is to spend less then $600, but more around $400 is actually what we can afford. But HOW??? If I want to stay a sahm, I must figure it out!
I've been canning (well, jarring actually) my neighbors apples, pears, plums, & nectarines. The fruits free, but the jars add up! At least I can reuse the ones I save next year.
