I did It!

I decided to take the Grocery Cart Challenge and I did it and was under budget. Thanks to Gayle I am looking forward to saving my family money and hopefully cooking some yummy meals. If you think you can't do just head over to Gayle's website and think again!! The most important thing for me to remember is PLAN and DON'T TAKE THE KIDS! I only spent $42 and have a plan for 7 dinners (and we always have leftovers), several breakfasts (I don't cook breakfast everyday) and two healthy desserts...we will be eating those as snacks as well. I don't have time this week to do the Menu Plan Monday and list what I bought but I will try next time and if anyone wants some of the recipes let me know. I got several of the recipes from the Friday Swap and can't wait to try them!

Good work, Leslie! I am signed up for the Grocery Game (not sure how similar they are), but I haven't actually gotten my act together to use it yet. Lovely to be paying money that is supposed to help me save money and then not use it! :)
