When making your list remember toiletries, Meds and water.
People make fun of me for being a food "hoarder" I'm okay with that, it's kind of the joke now.
DO THIS before prices get any higher.
SAVE, SAVE, SAVE....your money ( not that the dollar is going to be worth much soon)
Look for sales, use coupons.
Meal plan... this saves BIG at the market. My sister got me started on this and it saves hundreds of dollars a month, NO JOKE! I make my meal plan according to what is on sale and when I go to the market I stay focused on ONLY what is on my list. Some weeks I get distracted, but for the most part I do good.
Stop eating out....eating out in my family is such a luxury. I HATE spending money on food that tastes nasty. I cook so much better and it costs so much less and it's WAY better for you. When we treat are family and go out the kids get so excited.....it's actually pretty funny. WE NEVER EVER go though the drive through. Why do people still eat that CRAP. It amazes me!
Stop taking endless trips to town....do all your errands in one or two days...then you have more time to be busy in your home, being a homemaker...some people don't like that title....I LOVE IT!
