I spent WAYYY too much on groceries while we were at the beach. Too back I didn't practice what I preach by planning all of the meals, making menus and shopping the stockpile. Sometimes you just don't have the time or energy and that's okay. I am not beating myself up over it. Seeing how the majority of shoppers live by not using coupons was an affirmation that I will continue to use coupons. On the plus side, we did eat in a lot and packed our lunch and snacks for the days on the beach and that in itself saves a lot of money!
