Boost Your Budget {Week 2}

Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge

Welcome to week 2 of the Boost Your Budget Challenge with Shopper Strategy. {If you missed the intro post you can find the information about this challenge here.} How is everyone doing so far? We are doing okay here. Our goal was to spend less on eating out which we have done but did not cut out that spending as much as I would have liked. Sinisa came home the first night of the challenge with pizza which was really yummy but didn’t help with the fact that I am trying to eat healthier and spend less money on food. At least he got cheap pizza though :) One day we were out really late so we stopped at Wendy’s and got me a chili and the boys hamburgers. We then took it home and completed the rest of our meal from what was in our fridge (apples and milk for the boys and leftovers for Sinisa). That is not something we normally would do so that is an improvement in our habits. Yesterday Sinisa and I had a lunch date at Red Lobster but I had a gift card since I’m doing a review of their new restaurant design so we payed the tip and only $3 of the bill so that was a pretty cheap date.

My goal for this week is to eat out no more than once. I hope to stick to that plan and eat the yummy dinners on my menu plan for the week and eat my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks on the Special K plan so that I can limit the money we are spending on food.

  1. I blew my goals a little bit the first week by overspending so I’ve really gotta tighten up for the rest of the month! You’re not alone so don’t feel bad, besides I think you’re doing great and you’re taking steps in the right direction. Keep up the good work!
