I've put myself on a budget for groceries. Its not much but what i have learned from he change has been amazing. I never realized how much food i was throwing away before because i would just go get more. I find myself sctually using stuff up completely and the case it came in actually being empty when i toss it. I feel good about it! I am also limiting my shops since i am not a big fan of grocery shopping constantly. I take a certain amount out in cash and go do one big shop to last two weeks. If i run out of milk or butter i keep a little bit of cash to pick some necessities up when needed in between or get a pizza. Its really helped limit my spending and filling my bank account back up. I have spent an average of $200 less a month on food! Very proud of myself!

Good job!

i hate wasting food.  I try to use up every bit of things and make sure leftovers get eaten or reinvented.

it makes a huge difference.

Good job!

I had really started budgeting for food and groceries and it's made a difference. I used to keep our fridge and pantry stocked and threw away so much.

that's awesome. last week I made a list of all the stuff we had in our cupboards and came up with a list of meals to make to use up the ingredients and we bought just what we needed to make those meals.
