Saving, saving, saving. . .

So many of you know, Dan & I have been saving for our home. With the rising gas prices, longer commutes, and rising prices of everything else, we have to really step up our savings plan.

Today Ava & I went grocery shopping– I got everything we needed for the next week for the most part. We budget $150/wk for groceries, and this week an entire cart of food came to $143. Cha-ching!

It helped that diapers, Lean Cuisines, Ava’s lunches, popcorn and brownie mixes were on sale. All are items we use regularly, and some were on sale for $1 (savings of more than $1.20 per item!) Whoohoo!

So we’re decided that from now on, I go shopping alone. It’s easier, I get what we need, and I figure out how to save the $$. Thanks Jess for teaching me all the skills of grocery store savings!

I'm me. Graphic designer extraordinaire, urban master teacher of social studies, former adjunct professor, high school principal, and now most importantly-- Mom to the cutest little girl ever. I try to live by the quote, "Work like you don't need money, Love like you've never been hurt, And dance like no one's watching." I believe in Christ, and sometimes I'm just trying to figure out what He wants me to do. This blog chronicles that journey.
