Well, we went away this past weekend for the holiday and didn’t do our menu planning. But, we do have a lot in the freeze that we can make due with.
Emily sent out this quote in this week’s email and I really think it fits perfectly. But, not only on the budget but on the menu plan.
“Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.”
To keep a food budget on target you need to plan and have a menu. The menu will guide the food budget. So, we will be reviewing what we have and making due for this week. It will be a lot of easy meals as we have a lot of running to do each evening.
Biggest splurge this week
No splurges this week again.
I am happy that we have NOT eaten out, we have stayed at home and prepared meals. This is a huge win for us!
Goal for next week
Get back on meal planning and having the kids contribute to the meals again. We lost track of that a little.
