Budget this...

OK, I just started a budget last week. And yes, it is the first budget I have actually my life. That explains why we are in the mess we was working great! until an unexpected even occured and extra fees were going to be coming out for hospital parking, food, can be adjusted of course, but here I had been staring at the one budget for days and had it memorized and now that all goes out the window. Sigh...we will survive.

I know most people are used to preparing and following budgets, but I am not. I found this great idea online today

How do you handle your budget (or do you even have one :-) )??

How goes it?

Things, they are a changin 'round here. We are sticking to a pretty tight budget, so, seems we cant spend and spend like we are so accustomed. Dangit! So, I am trying to get into meal planning, where I plan what we are having each night of the week. This way, I only purchase these things at the grocery store:

Here is what I have for this week:

Monday: Pork Chops, Some Veggie, Some Bread
Tuesday: Chicken Sandwiches Chips, Pickle Spears
Wednesday: Baked Chicken, Green Beans, Biscuits
Thursday: Tacos
Friday: Fish Sticks, Tator Tots
Saturday: BBQ
Sunday: Homeade Pizza

What are some of your favorites to make for dinner? I have a long list of options, but would love to hear some other ideas, we need all the help we can get!
