Am I the only one who sits down to balance our checkbook, pay the monthly bills and then stares at the computer in sticker shock? Where does all of the money go?
I feel like we are a pretty frugal family, but my frequent shopping trips to Target prove otherwise. We have a household budget, thanks to Mr. Dave Ramsey. Unfortunately, Dave wouldn't be very proud of my Target bill lately.
Matt and I usually have a "State of the Smith's" phone call once a month. About once every year to year and a half, we decide to buckle down and pinch every penny we can. I scour our expenditures looking for things to cut. The biggest thing we could cut is our total in the grocery line. That got me to thinking about the best ways to save at the store. Do y'all have any ideas to share? I have done the Grocery Game in the past, but I always feel like a lot of her big saving items are things I wouldn't necessarily buy on normal circumstances.
I did some research today and found this Twitter feed. It gives out coupon codes, but doesn't necessarily help my grocery bill. The Money Saving Mom and Freebies4Mom were also good sites I found today. I'm on a mission to save y'all! I'm going to break down and get a twitter account so I can follow some of the saving tweets. I'll pass on anything I find and you please do the same!
