February's Grocery Goal

My original grocery plan for Feb was going to be $400. If you've been reading that long, you see this post that says I'm going to shoot for $160/month on the odd months and $400/month on the even months.

I've decided to drop that down to $320, so $80/week. However, I've decided to cheat a bit for Feb. Feb doesn't start until tomorrow. But I do the bulk of my grocery shopping on Saturday, which is today. Normally, it wouldn't be a big deal to just wait a day.

BUT, unless you hate sports or live under a rock, you realize that tomorrow is the Super Bowl. So, my plan is to first run a 4-mile race in the morning. Then we are having Arizona (boo!) friends over for chili. So that means if I wait till tomorrow to go shopping, I race from 9 to 9:45, shop from 10:15 to 11:15, shower, eat lunch, and start cooking. I'd rather just shop today. And my husband agreed it's dumb to drive myself crazy tomorrow "just because".

I figure it doesn't really count if we don't eat any of it today, right? And the only thing I need for today is a little bit of fresh ginger, probably even less than 0.23 worth (the leftover from Jan).
