Grocery Budget Victory
So it's the last day of our month (fiscally speaking. I love that word.) and we came in ON BUDGET for March! Wahoooooooooooo!
The biggest budget buster for us is always food. And this month we came in a tad under budget on eating out and a tad over budget on groceries which cancel each other out exactly. Love it when that happens. I even squeezed the first 3 month subscription to e-mealz.com out of this month's grocery budget (a stipulation from B Daddy for us giving it a go.)
So we really dug deep into the pantry this last week to make it through and here is a list of all the "staples" I'm currently out of:
And the kicker....COFFEE.
Have I told you how much I love my morning coffee? I don't think I have any friends currently who relate to my relationship with my morning java. It makes me sad. (For them, not me.) I love love love my coffee. I love the way it smells, I love the way it tastes, I love the way it looks when the creamer swirls around and turns it that perfect shade of sweetness. I love its warmth under my fingers as I shuffle around the kitchen. I love the sky blue glazed mug I drink it out of. It is so many wonderful things to me.
I can't wait to hit up the store tomorrow.
