Those who’ve been with me for a little while would be here from Bubs Under Budget.
That’s my old blog. And you would know that I had a $50 Grocery Limit
As I got more and more
fat with child pregnant, it went out the door a bit. I couldn’t go to the markets to do my shopping because it was too frikken hot. I couldn’t be bothered to do anything really.
Then, we moved into Mum and Dad’s. To save money. To pay off debt.
Annnnnddddd we moved out again.
So, here we are now. We paid off roughly $4000 from where we started
(that’s actually more than I thought it would be, I feel a little better right now!)
So, the point of all this – other than to spam you with links to my old blog posts – is to get back into my budget. I think I need to be a little more realistic this time because for one, I am now the owner of a toddler who eats like a Great Dane. But an expensive Great Dane. I think someone would probably report me if I just fed him leftovers and stuff out of the fridge I wasn’t sure about.
I’ve found one of the things I really struggle with is being prepared. Half the time I’m so exhausted I forget that I even have a child in the bed and they fall out (only happened twice, not half the time – that was an exaggeration) so preparing a balanced meal at 5pm when it’s the witching hour is beyond me most days.
And so, my kitchen is currently looking like a bomb has hit it because I have two different quiches, a massive lasagne and a corned beef cooking.
I’d love your ideas on healthy, cheap recipes and am more than happy to have you guest posting!
What’s your budget?
