what worked for me in planning, and saved me a little money, was deciding on my meals and keeping the grocery items in "meal piles" in my cart. that way i knew i did not forget anything and i knew how many days' meals i was buying. just thought i would share what helped me.

That's what I did last week, I planned my meals out & shopped for it. I tried a new recipe too, it was salmon & sauteed spinach. I got if from the Dr. Oz show when Rocco Dispirto was on.

Good for you & your husband!

Upon finishing week one I can say that I think I did pretty good with the challenge. Hubby and I together made a shopping list last weekend and we shopped for the week with a plan of our meals through the week. We didn't stick to it exactly but we did use the items we bought so nothing went bad and we cooked most meals at home all week.

Still working on organizing the kitchen. Our apartment is set up strangely in the kitchen department. A big, open kitchen with no counter or cupboard space so we use everything as storage and it is starting to just get hectic. We have talked about it, are planning to do a big clean tomorrow and start using the kitchen for just that, a kitchen, not a space for things to collect.

Looking forward to moving forward with this challenge!!
