Our Shopping Day~ 04/08/2017

Hubby and I needed to have a little chat about our grocery budget.  Since we revised it, we were staying with in budget :)  Everything was going great.  The problem was that for the last couple of months the last week of the month was pushed to the first of the next month.

So we decided to increase our grocery budget by $50 and shop for 3 weeks (the remaining of this month) and to increase our personal need spending by $5.  This should help keep the monthly purchases within that month.  At least until the next 5 week month :)

We have been enjoying shopping every 2 weeks instead of weekly.  It has really helped tame our grocery budget and hubby really doesn't enjoy going shopping.  So this is a win win for him :)
