One of the hardest things for me when I first got married was meal planning and grocery shopping. I hated both with a passion and would much rather go out to eat or visit BK or dare I say Mcdonalds. Not so anymore...with a little one on the way we are finding ways to save money and I am in charge of the food for our household.
Now I religiously cut out my coupons on Sundays and hunt for the best deals on food for the week. It is kinda like a game for me... and I get really excited when I save more money than I spend. Plus I have found that cooking isn't all that bad and we still have free days to visit our fav restaurants and fast food joints.
I think my mother would be proud.
