Starting this week, I am going to challenge myself to only spend $40 a week at the store. This amount is somewhat arbitrary and I may adjust my goal at the end of October. This will hopefully force me to pay better attention to sales, use coupons, and better utilize the food in our pantry. In addition, I am not going to spend any money on STUFF during the month of October. If I want to work on the house, I will have to use supplies we already have. If I need to give a gift, I will have to get super creative.
Do you have any tips for me that will support my cause?
