Menu Thursday

I am changing things up a bit in the hopes of saving a buck or two.
In stead of shopping weekly I am going to stretch it out to every 10 days.
I have a few friends who do this and it works great for them.
One of them gets paid once a month and and some that get paid every 2 weeks.
I am hoping that one day I'll find the secret code to this whole grocery shopping thing.
Who knows maybe this is it.
I am keeping my budget the same but just stretching out how long it has to last by 3 days.
$175 for 7 days is about $25 a day but $175 for 10 days is $17.50 a day.
Which is a difference of  $7.50 a day.
So my monthly food budget of $700 is now $525, which saves $175.
Which might not sound like a bunch, but its $2100 a year, come on that's Christmas, or a vacation.
All that money just for adding 3 days to my budget. Crazy!

I'm going to double it and freeze half of it for later.

Also going to double and freeze this as well.
