Scared by my grocery list!

I'm sitting here tonight compiling my grocery list, and I fully admit it's scaring me a bit right now!  Tomorrow marks 10% Tuesday around here (first Tuesday of each month), so I'm planning to make the best of the deal.  I'm hosting the feast Christmas day this year, figure it would be easier for the boys to be home with all their new toys.  It's not a complicated meal, but it does take some planning.  I'm trying to think of all the things I will need for the rest of the month, that I can get and store now.

I've been watching my money much more carefully this month, as well as marking down what I spend.  I'm not going the cash envelope method, but using an app for my iPhone to track what I spend in each category.  It's helping me keep from spending money on things I don't need.  Of course I'm only 6 days into the month, but so far it's looking promising.  Next month the savings will be better with no gifts to purchase.

Will be nice to see a nice balance back in savings again!
