Happy New Year to all of you.
To start of 2013, I am doing a grocery challenge. I have done this a few years in a row. I thought it would be a good way to kick off the year to do it again. It makes me look through the pantry and freezer and use items up, which is a good thing. Sometimes, I think, "There is nothing in the house to eat." When really, there is a lot of stuff to eat, I just don't feel like eating it.
So I am going to buy only 100 dollars worth of groceries this month, including tax. I should add that I have a very full refrigerator, an extremely well stocked pantry and a full freezer. There is a vegetable garden as well.
Here are my rules:
1) Meals out do not count.
2) That being said on average we eat one meal out a week, which we normally eat with a coupon.
3) I eat most of my meals at home, as does my children . Yohboh brings lunch with him most of the time. Kidlet does as well.
