Well the last two months have definitely gotten away from me. January brought many illnesses to my family. We ate many pots of soup this month. I managed to cut my grocery spending by $200.00 in the month of January. This was a HUGE milestone for me. February has also come and gone. February brought crisis to my family. My grandma who was 86 passed away from a major stroke. The past two weeks have been spent in hospice by her side remembering the good memories. Since I was not at home much the last few weeks. I have went over budget in February, but March started out well. I am truly eating out of my freezer and will try to give weekly updates this month on how I am cutting my grocery costs.
I am also trying to cut household costs. This week we have taken the plunge and canceled the satellite tv. I could not understand spending $100.00 a month on TV. I will also update on how the kids are handling this. So far it has gone well. They are playing with toys that have been forgotten over the last few months.
