Since tomorrow is May 1st (and it's still snowing, awesome), I had this brilliant idea for hubby & I to do a May Money Challenge. Cheesy? Yes. But we need to save more. We are pretty good with our money. Hubby manages all of our bills. I can't do that. It freaks me out. We don't spend on frivolous things. We really only buy things we need, but our problem is that we eat out a lot. Like, 3-4 times per week & I eat out for lunch every day. I suck at planning meals & grocery shopping. That's honestly the last thing I want to do when I get home from work, so; we eat out. It honestly needs to stop. It's a little ridiculous. We are both trying to eat healthier & lead healthier lifestyles, so what better way to save money & eat better than to go on a money diet??
Basically what we're doing is seeing who can spend the least amount of money each week in the month of May. Even though I know hubby will find this very easy, it's more of a challenge to myself to see how much will power I can have to make my own meals everyday. And the results (both physically & financially) will hopefully be great!
So, on Monday; I'm headed to Costco to stock up on veggies, fruit, lunch meat, lettuce & whatever else I need so I can make my own lunches as well as dinners. No eating out.
This is going to be HARD, but I'm up for the challenge & so excited for the results!
Wish us luck!!
If any of you have money saving tips you use in your household, let me know!! I'm so open to suggestions!
Oh, and the crib arrived today!!! Can you believe it? I just ordered the dang thing on Tuesday & it's already at our house! After we paint tomorrow & it dries on Sunday, we'll be setting that baby up! I can't wait!!! I know it's early, but we have it; so we might as well assemble it right??
Have a wonderful weekend lovely ladies.
