a day in the life of June


So, after looking at my schedule this week, there have been some things that I'm not proud of. There have been lots of late nights, and less planning of each day the previous night before.

I usually plan, but confess that the moving around of the study/TV room has thrown my systems into disarray. It made me behind in the washing and ironing (usually Sunday jobs) and then because I was still tweaking things during the week, it gave me less planning time at nights. Can you tell that each day everything is squeezed in, and there's not much room to play with?

The most noticeable thing: this week's grocery bill. I usually plan my week's meals, go through my pantry and write out a shopping list. But this week I didn't. And thank you very much $220 grocery bill (usually $150). Yikes! Well, I guess the pantry is well stocked for those 'just in case' meals, and perhaps if I plan well enough next week, perhaps I can do my weekly shop for less than $100 to make up for it.

Do you plan your meals and make a shopping list? Is there a weekly grocery budget you try to stick to?

Thanks for stopping by.
