Project: Food Budget- Should it continue?

April 21, 2011

Tuesday, I had the day off to mark the start of Passover. This allowed Serafina and I to have a leisurely time at the grocery store. She enjoyed the sample bread and butter, I enjoyed visiting the extra large Harris Teeter, which is a little farther away. As we wandered, I thought about the trajectory of our life in the next few months. I realized finding time to post to the blog is hard enough, but an extra post about budgeting seems harder. I also think that over the last three months, I have really adjusted our spending habits, found new tricks, and gotten our budget under control. Even if I go over budget, I am still at least a hundred dollars below what we used to spend. It might be time to graduate from this project. But, I will defer to readers, give me feedback. Do you read these entries or pass over them for recipes?
