Sorry for all the budgeting talk but it's a big part of my life right now.
We're making good progress though. I really do feel we're on the right track and have a good plan in place.
The menu plan needs some work. I actually went over-budget with my cool menu plan. I'm really not sure how that happened but will work on it some more.
I also realized that when you don't at least pencil in a lunch menu, you end up having sandwiches. A lot. So, I will be planning lunches and suppers this next time. I'm still working on the new plan. I've been asking my family what they think are "1-month meals" (meals to just have once a month) or "2-month meals" (meals worthy enough to have twice a month).
Here's hoping this next one will go better!
