We have been awesome with meal planning and sticking to our grocery budget this month. We have only ordered food unplanned once and most of our meals have been at home. I ran to the store late last week to pick up some produce and a few other things. We have been eating well from our first grocery haul of the month. I still have about $35 left in the monthly budget. We are going to need some milk, eggs and peppers and I will probably use the rest to buy meat for the freezer or roll it over to next month.

As you can see, I didn’t need much. Good planning before shopping and sticking to the meal plan makes it pretty easy to do the majority of my grocery shopping once a month with just a mini trip like this about half way through.
How often do you go to the grocery store? Do you find you spend more money if you go more often?
