I have to tell you, this menu planning thing has really worked out so far. We have gone over on our grocery budget this month though. We have been making little grocery runs and getting stuff not on the list. We learn as we go right? That's okay. I have a ton of food in the freezer. Next month's grocery run will be minimal so I'm hoping to be able to make up the overage by not spending as much in February.
