Almost Met My Spending Limit Goal!

June 9th, 2012 at 03:55 pm

I wound up spending $124.00 for groceries today. That's far better than the approximately $177.00 I was doing before! I am doing the snoopy dance.

I have also figured out a way to decrease the amount of bad (and costly) snack food I have been frequently eating. Instead of going to a convenience store to get a package of trail mix (typically $1.00 to $1.99, depending on the kind), I bought a big bag of trail mix at the store. The bad thing about these convenience store trips is that I also feel tempted to get a soda instead of iced tea or bottled water. If I knock out the snack food as a problem, I have no excuse than to drink my own iced tea and eat trail mix I bought at the grocery store. I figure I can save at least $10.00 a week. I will send an extra payment to the credit card with this money. Yeah.

    Nice going on the trail mix. My wife makes our own when she can get the raw materials in bulk, and that also leads to some insurance of savings -- because trail mix is NOT cheap! Also smart thinking on eliminating that temptation for soda, as well. Wink Jerry

    Good job on the trail mix. I try to keep 2-3 pitchers of tea in the fridge so I don't have an excuse to buy something I shouldn't. I have also been getting lemons at Aldi and making lemonade and dh loves it and says he doesn't miss soda one bit.
