I gave up spending extra money for Lent one year, and it was really eye opening. Since then, I occasionally have to go on “mini-fasts” to reel things in when I get too Starbucks-happy, but it’s amazing what a pivotal point that was. As for groceries and weekly management, I definitely shop with the circulars and shop for a whole week at once. I love it because it really cuts down on my running around during the week, and I can look forward to certain dishes and plan in a variety of foods. I also find that I eat more veggies and fruits when I stock up and plan to eat them. I also do give myself an allowance that is kept in cash. Once I’m out, I’m out!

I find it too stressful to use coupons and I even shop without a membership/discount card in a lot of stores while I try to look at the comparative prices of things. (At the register I just smile when they ask me for my card and I say “oh, I don’t have it with me today”)

I end up shopping Walmart a lot because it’s close and they are open late – most stores I used to like to go to now close at 9 p.m. while Walmart has extended its hours till midnight. What’s up with that?

The problem is I convince myself Walmart is cheaper so I buy more stuff instead and end up with lots of crap I don’t need (chips, cookies…) and they never sell fruits and veggies, so that still drives me to the regular stores…

It’s so tough being a grown-up! I want someone else to shop and cook for me again!
