Planning Success~Budget Boot Camp

Sorry I have been missing in action.  I have been enjoying some family time and I will have some posts about that soon.  Today I wanted to report on how the Budget Boot Camp is going.



Last week I posted about menu planning and my 90 day Budget Boot Camp.  Today I am posting about how that went this week.  I am happy to report that I had some success with menu planning.  I sat down with my husband and we planned out 3 weeks of meals.  This is atypical as my husband is on vacation (more about that soon) so he was involved which I found very helpful.  We planned meals that were sensible, healthy, and that we like as a family.  I made a shopping list and bought what we would need for the week and then stuck to it.  We did spend a little more than usual because we went out of town and had a large family BBQ for the holiday, but it was nice to have a plan and not run back to the store several times.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was and how if I plan ahead that I am less likely to give in and go out to eat which is where we waste a LOT of money. 

Did any of you join in?  Tell me how it went and what success or failures you had.  You can link up with Beth at In Good Sense and show us how it went for you too.
