Budgeting ....

I've decided that to try and save some money on our groceries we are going to do a fortnightly shop. I have worked out a menu plan for the next 2 weeks so as long as we stick to it we won't starve. The only extras we'll get next week are milk, bread and fresh fruit/veg but I've budgeted for that too. This is the first time that I've tried something like this so I have no idea what I'm doing but I'm hoping to shave $200 off our monthly grocery bill and so far so good.

I'll keep you posted as to how I get on and if you have any great budget meals then I'm keen to hear about them.

Me too!
I find so long as you have menu plan and buy everything you need, it works out well.
