I set a goal each month on how much I want to spend on groceries. I barely ever succeed in this but I do find it helps me keep to a reasonable budget.
I do set myself a weekly challenge to to do a menu plan. So far so good in that department. Don't always follow it to the letter, but it does give me some sense of organization and as I am a lazy cook it keeps me motivated.
I guess I do set daily goals of making sure I get up, dressed, showered every day. Make sure the house in order and meals on the table.
Are you a goal orientated person?
Did my first grocery shopping for the month of April. Had a question. I spent $100 this week. I went and lost a receipt, so guessed what that would have been, so not overly concerned with the total........BUT.......in amongst the money I spent this week, I paid $24 for an ice cream cake for ds birthday tomorrow and picked up four plants as Easter gifts for a cost of $16.80. Should I include them in my monthly total? I think I should take out the plants, but not 100% sure about the ice cream cake? What are your thoughts?
