I've become really stingy with the food bill

I'm trying to atone for many years of blissful food shopping. This year I've resolved to get food budget under control and set a weekly and monthly limit.


Sometimes I run out of time on the weekends to get all the shopping done so I leave a long list for husband to complete. And he is more indulgent.

This week I got croissants - a 24 variety pack!!! Like I need that many croissants but how can I really complain??? They are too good.

I could use some croissants - maybe not 24, but it sure sounds good.

I should be stricter with the food budget, but I figure we rarely eat out so we can live it up a bit at the store.

I have been getting more stingy about our eating out. We used to go out once a week after church. However, we just picked up a new-to-us car. And along with it came the bill. (Aw, shucks!) Well, the family has been so used to getting Chinese after church that it's been a hard habit to break. But, you know what, a sandwich is fine. And we can make something better for Sunday dinner.
