Thank you all for putting up with my emotional self. Hopefully I can keep it all in check more often than not. I did find something that makes me happy – menus and cooking! Thanks to Yara’s recommendation, I now am using EMealz. I have a button in my sidebar if you want to see what they are all about. Basically, they make a menu that coincides with items that are on sale at my supermarket. The total cost of food for a week of dinners is between $75 and $85.
I did my grocery shopping tonight and I’m pretty darn happy with what I purchased and the menu I have for this week. I was worried that I would be buying a bunch of processed foods that I don’t normally buy, but that didn’t happen. They did recommend instant rice but I’m used to plain old rice so I bought regular rice for no added expense. Same goes for salad. They recommend bagged salad, but I like to chop my own lettuce and salad stuff. Although, I did buy some of the bagged salad today because it was on sale for such a good price.
Am I boring you yet? I can’t help it, I get unusually excited over grocery shopping, budgeting, and cooking. Damn, I need a life!
