We were low on some groceries, like bread, milk, eggs, and cereal. So, we stopped at the store on our way home from church.
Instead of getting ONLY NECESSITIES, I snagged a few items that were in sale and I would have bought next weekend. Is that bad? Well, it is for the budget!
I ended up spending $80. When I only have $40 in cash in my pocket. Oh, smoked bacon! That’s double what I planned to spend! I got some smoked bacon, too, by the way.
I bought a ton of store brand or on sale items, did a ton of comparison shopping with the brands. According to the receipt, I saved $20. So, I really bought $100 worth of stuff! That’s even worse!
Sometimes I feel so defeated. Maybe next weekends major grocery shopping will be lighter since I have some of those ingredients already? One can hope.
Needless to say, the only thing good going on these days? I started an online marketing business and it’s been outstanding! I highly encourage you to check it out, too!
