So you know the whole saving money thing??

Yea, didn't go so well last month! We only spent 20 bucks less on groceries (so still an ungodly amount) and spent waaaay too much eating out again too. Admittedly I wasn't really trying at all, so I'm not too disappointed. We did make great strides in saving money on espresso though, we went from spending over 100 bucks to spending less than 40. Woot! Woot!

Our plan for July is to go grocery shopping once a week and to have a list & a plan for dinners when we go. Also, we are only allowing ourselves to go out to eat 4x this month. And everything counts. Like if we want to drive down the hill to DQ for a burger that is one of our dining out times. So far so good on that front. We went out once for breakfast. But we went out with brother-in-law and his girlfriend so it was well worth it. And planned. Not just an on-a-whim-I-don't-feel-like-cooking going out to eat.
