One of the things that my husband picked up when we went to the Weekend to Remember conference is the idea that we need a budget. Apparently, when the men got together for their session they filled his head with all kinds of crazy ideas. For example, ordering coffee online is not a staple. Or saving money can be like a game. Yeah like scrabble....I hate that game.
So we come home and Scott bought a computer program and apparently we are now on a budget. March is apparently the "tracking" month. We were suppose to make predictions and then try and meet them...and blah blah blah. I was checking my facebook when he was explaining.
Since I mainly do all of the banking, Scott was a little surprised when evil little computer program spit out that we spend an obscene amount on "convenience" foods. To be honest I have been convicted in this area for awhile. I actually enjoy cooking but I never seem to have the time. But cooking my own meals would SAVE us money. See it is like a game! sigh......
I decided that this would be my own "tracking" month. I am going to start planning meals and I found a lot of great slow cooker recipes online which will help on days where Scott and I are both working.
If you have any budget tips or recipes, feel free to share. You know, like a game.
