Have you ever heard of Flylady? She is the reason that I can manage my home. Until I started reading emails from her, my house was a disaster. For Flylady…it all started with a shiny sink.

Why do I grocery shop weekly?
I’ve tried shopping weekly, every other week, monthly, multiple times a week, etc.
I have found that if I don’t focus on a weekly plan, then I get overwhelmed. When I first learned how much money I could save at the grocery store by having a plan, I focused on planning and shopping for just a few days at a time. We went out to eat frequently so I needed to break that habit first.
I also use the pantry principle concept. I stock up on the items that I know I am going to use every week. We eat hamburger for dinner about three times a week and we eat it at breakfast frequently. I just found out that our local meat supplier sells 50 pound boxes of burger. I’m looking forward to having burger on hand so I don’t have to factor that into my weekly grocery shopping trip.
Please let me know if there anything I can help you with!

Someone left a comment over at MoneySavingMom stating that they were struggling with their food budget. I suggested that they break down their food budget using categories. This has been so enlightening for me, I hope that it’s helpful for you.
