If you’ve been around here long you know that we operate on a cash budget. And if you’ve looked at the calendar you’ll notice that the end of the month falls in the middle of this week. WooHoo! The end of one month and the start of a new month mean a few things:
- I’ll be making my monthly trip to Costco this week.
- I’ll be going to the grocery store twice this week.
- My Freezer Club will be meeting soon…yeah for food in the freezer!
I always love the start of a new month. Having a menu plan always helps me save money at the grocery store, plus it saves time and sanity. Plan with me! And hey, if you don’t have a freezer club, by all means, start one this month!
