New Years Resolution

So for my New Years Resolution I have decided to really take a look at my grocery spending. I am determined to slash the amount I spend and use everything I buy without having to throw it out. I am sadly one of those people who see things, not on the list, and throw them in my cart. This had led to spending more than necessary and more waste.

So this year I will be documenting all my grocery purchases and evaluating how often I buy items and how much of the items I really use. This will help me to develop a better system of making grocery lists and weekly meal plans (coming soon). I hope this will hold me accountable and keep me on track. Plus, who doesn't want to save more money?

So here is my latest grocery trip to Costco with a stop at Target on 01-14-12. I will be listing the items and adding the price and amount purchased.
