Gettin in control
Thanks guys for all the money saving advice!After all the tallying yesterday, I was not very happy with the amount of money I have been impulsively spending. I am taking the concept of “Eating healthy will cost me” way too ahead. I really liked the idea of sticking to the pantry items and emptying them first before running to the grocery store.
So things that I have learned to get in control:
- Clear off the pantry items first and then jump into the car to get to the favorite spot in the world The Grocery Store!!
- Meal planning: Many people vouch for this idea and I think its time I take the plunge!
- Give coupon a shot..I think??? What are your thoughts about this. I have never been into coupons, so any idea about this concept highly appreciated.
- Keep a check on impulsive buying!!! Just a quick thought on that one, I have started thinking a lot if I really need to spend on something..and really really think! Requires effort but it is paying off..I feel so happy in the end!
My life will be much easier if I stick to these four things to begin with! Just like food blogging makes me accountable about what I eat, Spend app on my Itouch will help me in recording those untimely and spontaneous spending!
It has been pouring continuously since morning but thankfully it has calmed down now!! Thank goodness we can have the Tennessee Vs Ohio game!
I have never been interested in football but my allegiance towards Tennessee is sparking an interest in me!
Moving on my eats:
Breakfast was a simple Oatmeal with chai tea!
[This is irritating me, the picture does not want to get uploaded]
Lunch was a total Indian fest today with Cauliflower with potatoes, Dal, Puri (deep fried bread) and brown rice!!
My tummy was full and happy after this meal!
We acted nerdy this afternoon and decided to play some chess but the bad news I lost.
Dinner was some Schezuan tofu with peppers on brown rice. The curry was made at home!!
Before I leave look at this German chocolate loot that my husband got this time.
Well that was my day! Hope you are having a nice weekend! I sure am, this is the first weekend without tests and assignments!!
Have a nice evening and see y’all tomorrow
