http://escapebrooklyn.blogspot.com/ asked me how I was able to only spend $36 last month on groceries and I realized that I probably didn't fill you in on everything. Sorry, not trying to hide any information from you, I just hadn't really thought about it. Last month I received (2) $30 gift cards from my local grocery store for having (2) prescriptions filled there. $60 in groceries definitely helped out that category in my budget and I stocked up on some really great sales they were having too.
I think I have also neglected to tell you that breakfast is always served at my office, so I never need to eat at home before heading in. And there are always stocked cupboards of snacks and sodas on hand for whenever we want or need something. This has been a huge help to the budget for sure. And if I forget my lunch some days, I can always eat cheese and crackers that are on hand there, saving on the dining out budget as well.
So, I apologize for not divulging all the information before, I hadn't meant to deceive anyone. I think I still do a pretty good job sticking to a budget and not overspending on my food. What can I say, I'm a cheapskate!!!
