budgets & my challenge
Six lonely months :(
So while I would rather have my husband than money...well it helps.
In about a month he will be returning home. I am so excited I could just cry...and believe me I have. But every time I talk to that cute Seabee of mine, he likes to remind me that that money won't be there anymore.
Now please don't get me wrong. It's not like we are going to be living off of $5 a month or something BUT it will be different.
And so the challenge begins...using coupons I can get a lot of things for free. I have a big stockpile. And so I really want to challenge myself. Really, really challenge.
I have a pretty good sized grocery budget. OK a big one. What can I say, I'm spoiled. Just don't tell my hubby I said that!!
Anyway....here it is....$60 a week. I was going to do $50 but most atm's only give 20's. I'm nothing if not practical. (:
So every Saturday I will be showing you what I got for the $60 AND what we ate and cooked etc. I will also let you know if I go over or under!!
