i am challenging myself to limit my grocery purchases to twice a month.
the rules might change, but i think it is a good way to go.
for one—i have a great store of food squirreled away. this year i have more than i have ever had before—beets, potatoes, carrots, apples, tomatoes, squash, pumpkins, zucchini, strawberries, peaches, pears, peppers...that is just the fresh stuff and that's not all of it.
the fact is, i'm somewhat of a food hoarder. i like the idea of having jars with rice and beans and lentils and noodles lining my cupboards. i like having a fridge filled with my garden and a freezer brimming with more.
so i don't really need groceries most of the time.
naturally i am not going to let myself skip out and eat out all the time.
i think we'll put a two time cap on that as well—two is a good number.
there is just no reason. and i should revamp my spending levels on all levels.
it will be good for me.
