5 Ways to Save Money on Food

Well, we are one week into our “No Spend September” and man oh man has it been a challenge!! All the awesome Labor Day sales were a real temptation! But, I stayed strong and stayed away! Yay me! I did make a trip to Ikea with my daughter-in-law when we were in St Louis visiting, but I only bought two pillow covers, and I spent my cash allowance. 🙂 Today, however, I’d love to talk about one category of our budget that has always been a stumbling block…food.

Overwhelmed By His Blessings

Soooo, hey there!

It’s been a day or two since I hopped on here to share with you guys!! Ugh! I had no intention of taking a two three month break from blogging 😳 , but I can’t say I hated it. Can you imagine taking that much time off from your job? Even if you love your job? Wouldn’t it be nice to just set it aside and focus on something else for a while. Well, that’s just what I did.

Life got busy, and I mean BIIZZZYYY. And, one day I just came to the realization that something had to give, and to be honest projects and blogging was the only thing that I could actually let drop for a while. So, I did. It’s July now, and things seem to be settled back into some kind of normalcy and I feel like a human again. And, I’m ready to get back at it all! And, bonus! The break really renewed my fire for all of it!!

Today though, I just thought I would take a moment and catch you up. If you follow me on IG (Instagram) or if you’re a friend in real life then you know where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. But, if for some reason you don’t, then I’ll be happy to lay it all out for you! 🙂
