We’re kicking off the yr with an 8-week Reduce Your Grocery Invoice Problem. I’ll be sharing a weekly publish right here each Thursday with a activity or problem so that you can full/deal with that will help you tweak, enhance, or overhaul your grocery price range.
My hope is that we will all work collectively to crowd-source new concepts and recent inspiration to be extra considerate and intentional in our grocery budgets + hopefully avoid wasting cash and instill some practices and ideas and habits that may proceed to avoid wasting us cash all through the remainder of the yr.
In week #1, we talked about setting up a grocery budget. That’s a very powerful first step in chopping your grocery invoice.
In week #2, we mentioned why you need to recognize potential roadblocks. Be sure you read through the comments here to listen to about others’ roadblocks. I feel it would encourage you to know you’re not alone.
Final week, I challenged you to commit to change one thing for three weeks. You’ll be able to see the comments on the post for ideas of what others picked.
Week #4: Examine In on Your Progress
It’s been 4 weeks since we started this problem and it’s time to examine in and see how we’re doing. How are you doing sticking along with your price range? What are you scuffling with probably the most? Are there issues that you’re discovering particularly troublesome? Has something shocked you?
Additionally, have you ever saved cash? In that case, how a lot?
It’s necessary to recurrently examine in in your progress. Typically, we will assume we’re making progress, but when we don’t really cease to measure and quantify it, we received’t know! As well as, take time to re-assess what’s working and what’s not working and have a good time the wins you’ve had and make changes or tweaks in areas the place you’re struggling.
I went to my ordinary Kroger this week. There weren’t any loopy, wonderful offers, however I did discover some offers and markdowns.
All totaled: $95 and a few change for all of this.
I’m going to purchase eggs from some buddies who’ve chickens after which we’ll roll over what’s left within the price range from being under-budget the previous two weeks. (About $23 complete.)
I’m loosely planning we’ll have Rooster Broccoli Rice Casserole, Sloppy Joes, Barbecued Rooster & Twice Baked Potatoes, Sausage/Potatoes/Carrots within the Crockpot, Bean & Cheese Burritos, after which we’ll have leftovers/fend for your self night time one night time and takeout for Kathrynne’s 18th birthday!
