Weekly Plans & Menu: October 4th

Weekly Focus: Using what we have! Last week I mentioned our family was trying a new savings plan. Our grocery budget for the week is $25 during the month of October. This is going to be a bit interesting for us since we haven’t really had a budget before. Well, we’ve had an idea of what we would like to spend but never worried too much about sticking to it. I think the most important way for us to stick to our plan for the month is to have a MENU PLAN each week. Tricia at Handfuls of Purpose is actually hosting a Like Merchant Ships: Mastering Your Menu Challenge. The timing couldn’t be better! Make sure you pop by!
