I have a set amount of money to spend every month on groceries. Monthly budgeting works best for me since I buy in bulk quite often. When I buy chickens from my farmer, I don’t just buy one. I order large quantities of dry goods from Country Life Natural Foods. You get the idea. So, when I have a month with five Mondays (my usual shopping day), that last week is usually “eat what we have in the house even if it seems a little weird” week. Think I should come up with an acronym for that? Probably not.
Anyway, welcome to that week :).
