Ok, so I know I don't watch every dime but I decided to actually itemize my bank statement this month. I spent nearly $600 on groceries!! I just about crapped! Thats for 1 month for basically just our 13 year old son and me. DH buys his own! Can we say, serious budget time! I all ready buy store brands, shop for specials, buy 1 get 1 free and stuff like that. I have all the store cards to help save also. I know I spend way to much on junk. Chips and ice cream are gonna need thinning out. We have a Sam's card and use that for cleaning supplies, paper products, and bulk foods. I would use coupons but we don't get the paper. Anywhere else I can get coupons? Now with the roomie gone, I can freeze more leftovers for later. I try to make meals stretch. Anyone have any words of wisdom? I even looked into our Angel food ministeries but we wouldn't eat some of the stuff and feel like it might be a waste. I can't do without my chocolate, please help!!
