Cash and Carry

I do attempt to operate on a cash basis once in a while. I always start out with good intentions, but then something happens. Usually I see something I want and I get out the debit card and rationalize in my mind that it is okay to buy it because I have been doing so well by just using cash. I sabotage myself.

That being said, I am going to try again. Cash for groceries and personal care items. You know, I read how other bloggers can gey by on forty dollars a week for groceries and they have families that number at least four members. How do they do that??

There is just me and hubs, and I cannot get out of the store for less than one hundred dollars!!! Anyway,, I am going to try it again. I have already after returning from vacation last week and I did use my debit. But don't you know,, I had to go back to Publix and get a few more things, BOGO eight o clock coffee... the Ranier cherries which are BOGO.... Well... 60 dollars later I have what I want and need.

But, I did pay cash. Hard to believe, but true. Now I have 60 dollars (approx) left for the rest of the week, for milk and well whatever else. Lets see if it can last. HaHa......

Happy Saturday!
