Project: Food Budget, I’m Back!

April 14, 2011

 

So, things are getting so much better over here. We did a house inspection, and our new house is looking good. Getting back inside helped me remember all the details we loved, and another shot at that kitchen. We also found places in the yard that I could grow veggies, something I missed doing last summer.

Now, it is just time to get our own house sold! This means keeping the kitchen spic and span for the many visitors we get a week. Because we were busy the past two weeks, we got in a no-cooking rut. However, due to the need to budget for the next few months, we are back to our frugal shopping and meal planning.
