Grocery Shopping: I Stuck To Our Budget!

This afternoon was the first test for our budget. We do our grocery shopping every other week and more often than not, we would overshoot our limits. Today, though, I am proud to say that we passed!

We made a list together yesterday so that we could prioritize what we wanted and what we needed. That really made things so much easier for me although I have to admit, I still got a few things that were not on the list. Still, I was a couple of hundred below my allotted amount.

If there weren't so many people at the supermarket, I would have enjoyed myself more. Another good was that I didn't have any trouble with the cab driver at all! In fact, he was so nice and even helped me with the bags without my asking. I realized that sometimes, being without Jerry is a good thing (sorry, Jer).

Anyhow, let's see how we do this week with regard to the budget.

  2. Good for you sticking to your budget! The best time for grocery shopping for me is around 7 a.m. on a weekday or 11:30 a.m. on a Saturday.

  3. Karen - 7 am wow! I don't think we have any supermarkets open at that time although I remember my parents going to the wet market earlier than that. I don't think I can do this. :p
