I wanted to share with you a great article Crystal @ MoneySavingMom published today. She is doing a series on 31 days until a better grocery budget and today’s feature was setting a grocery budget. Read her article here.
I just posted my February grocery spending and managed to stick to my budget this month and stockpile quite a few things! My budget is $40 a week for grocery stores and I was at $41.00 for the month. I found that I was going over my budget last year because I wasn’t tracking what I was spending until the month was over and by then it was too late! So, I am adding my spending up more often and sharing my spending and savings with you each month to help me keep more accountable.
So how are you doing? Do you have a grocery budget? You will find you will save more and be able to stockpile if you have a budget/goal in mind that you want to spend each week. Follow the steps Crystal lays out and you will be saving more in a few short weeks!
