Save Some Green!

As we have begun our new student journey we have had to be extra careful in our expenditures.  I had a brilliant thought a few weeks ago and thought I would share it with YOU!


We have recently incorporated a weekly grocery budget.  Let’s say it is $100.  If you always shift your grocery shopping day by one day later each week you will save yourself a lot of money!  For example, if I shop on Monday one week, Tuesday the next week, and Wednesday the following... I will eventually have skipped shopping one week saving myself $100. 

I personally have tried to push shopping off by 1-2 days each week so that in a month period I have saved the amount I spend weekly.  If you shoot for this goal on $100/week budget you will have saved over $1000 that year!  WOW, wow, wow!

Hi ! That is how I shop. I make a list, like this week I have bought for mon-next mon. Then next week it will be tue- tues. Saves lots of money in the long run!

I love doing this whenever I can! Given our current single-car situation, I generally have to shop on Saturdays. But someday I would love to do this every week!
