Well Friend, let me tell you how NOT to save on groceries.
- go to the store tired and hungry — check!
- shop without a list or meal plan — check!
- buy convenience foods — check!
- shop at a higher priced store — check!
Yes, I managed to hit them all. Ugh!
Well, maybe you can learn from my mistakes and do a better job this week. I at least have a meal plan now for what I bought.
