When it comes to family expenses, I try to account and budget for as much as I can but sometimes the little things slip by and I pay for it later (literally). One of the expenses I tend to forget about are glasses. I’m the only one in our family that wears them (so far, I’m pretty sure my husband could use a pair) and even though I need them, I hardly wear them. So when the time comes to get a new pair it’s always a shock to the system to see how much they cost sometimes. $400? $500? $600+? Yeah, that buys me a renovation or that new patio set I’ve been so desperately wanting. That plus I’m not a looker when it comes to glasses, I prefer contacts.
It’s just the three of us here in our household and Carter is 11 months, so you would think that our grocery bill is pretty small. It’s not. It’s not like we buy a lot of stuff either, but it’s a lot of meat and produce. So when I had the opportunity to learn how to save as much money as possible while grocery shopping I jumped at the chance to read Budget Savvy Diva’s Guide To Slashing Your Grocery Bill by 50% or More.
