The time has come for a change in my household, time for me to get my domestic skills under control. I really have no excuse, so this week I started a challenge for my family – 30 day of NO EATING OUT, NO FAST FOOD, NO “LET’S JUST SWING BY AND GRAP SOMETHING.”
All of that has ended. I spent Sunday preparing a menu for the next 15 days and last night I spent an hour and a half buying everything and still saving $75 in coupons and store specials. I have to say I am pretty proud of myself.
Here is what it looks like:
I really hope to make it for 30 days and then even longer. I think more time around our own table will be good for us and more time in the kitchen will definitely help me.
**it took my so long at the grocery store because as I was stocking up for 15 days everyone else was freaking out about the ice storm we were expecting in North Texas. Just as normal Texans do – everything is shut down tight today – well almost – everyone is inside staying warm. 19 is cold!
And yes I know valentine’s day is on the 14th – we are celebrating on the 13th at least with food.
