Menu Planning & Grocery List

January 1st is always a time for new beginnings and a great date to restart your budget. We try to follow a budget each month but to be honest we aren't perfect at it! The beginning of the year (along with a few times in the middle of the year) is a time my husband and I re-evaluate our budget and make changes where we need to. One of the areas we always over spend is on eating out. It's so easy to go over in this area on nights we are tired and don't want to cook at home. Eating out sounds easy, fun, stress free and yummy.

Pinterest Love

I loooooove Pinterest. Have you checked it out yet? If not, you need to. Right now!... No wait… finish reading why you should join and how you can follow my boards and then go, go, go. It is the perfect way to save all your ideas, recipes and blogs that you come across on the internet. When I first heard about Pinterest, I was kind of hesitant. (I’ve also been hesitant joining Twitter so maybe that’ll be the next thing I sign up for!) I didn’t want to have another site to stay up on, remember a password to or waste time on. Oh, so wrong.
