In Response to Savings Challenge by communityhost
I have always lived on a budget. My husband is a pastor and not highly paid. Recently we are doing Financial Peace University with Dave Ramsey. A girl I know said that she and her husband had a love/hate relationship with Dave Ramsey. I have begun to take budgeting seriously because I can see "retirement" in the future.
I "enjoy" going to the grocery store. I make menus for the week and examine my cabinets, frig, freezer, etc. to see what I have in the way of ingredients then write down the needed item. I usually have more than one grocery ad by my side. I have begun to use coupons again. I go to the grocery store in search of "treasures". I always use a calculator to add what I put in my cart. It is like going on a treasure hunt to see how well you can feed your family and stay within the budgeted amount.
But do not do with without a calculator!!!! If you "think" you have stayed within your budget, you probably haven't. Happy shopping!!!
