If you can’t tell by now I’m a no holds barred, grab life by the seat of my pants, lets “get ‘er done” type of gal.
I don’t like slothfulness. I have the patience of an Indy Car racer revving the starting line.
And if I can’t go all out, I tend to have withdrawals.
But I’m trying something new. I’m ridding my life of any “extras.” Extra clothes that aren’t being worn, extra household items that aren’t being used, extra interactions that aren’t productive, and I’ve got to say, so far so good.
The area where I’m having the biggest time letting go is my food selection. I tend to buy lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Along with that, I tend to buy tons of bread and milk. But theres a definite trend I’ve been noticing these past few months…no one is consuming my large quantities but Tiny & I. In turn, that leaves us with plenty of uneaten leftovers, and lots of formerly fresh turned spoiled and forgotten perishables.
What is a mother to do?!
For the past two weeks I’ve been folding my newfound K.I.S.S. program into my grocery shopping, and unfortunately the jury is still out.
While we haven’t wasted nearly as much food, I found myself adding about $35 additional dollars to my overall bill.
*insert confused emoji here*
But I’m not giving up all hope. I kept last week’s grocery receipt so I can use it as a means of compare.
In the meantime, I’m looking for ways to lower the overall cost.
If you have any suggestions, I’d sure like to hear them.
