My reflections on our struggles with the ‘Grocery’ category of our budget. I contemplate the possibility that we are squeezing some of our budget categories too hard and actually receiving a negative result. I also am well aware that we might just be making excuses in order to avoid adapting new habits into our lives. It’s been a question that has been on my mind for a couple days. Watch and let me know your opinion on it.
For those of you’d that don’t like videos, here’s a short story:
Last night after finishing up the video, I was moving a portion of our dresser. Upon scooting it a little, I looked down and to my surprise found a $20 bill. This might not be out of the ordinary for you guys, but it’s certainly rare for us! This sucker has been hiding out for what has to have been months.
Sweet! I love finding money. Of course, the first thing I thought about is what I should spend it on. I thought about it for a second, but then took the next logical step any human would do…
I tweeted about it and asked for some suggestions:
@jonathanmead – Candy. I mean, something important. A sweater.
@aboutcredit – A Mother’s Day Gift.
@joshorem – May I reccomend a 30 pack of PBR, and you can save the other 5 bucks.
@suburbandollar – BEER!!!
@fcn – Tequila. It’s Cinco de Mayo, after all. #cincodemayo
@tivajoy – …you should save it.
Nice group of people I have following me, huh? That’s what I thought.
In the end, I decided to ignore them all. You know where this puppy is heading?
Right into the ‘Grocery‘ envelope. You guys know me better than that!
