Today, I cut Mike's hair and he cut the boys' hair. Don't laugh. This was something he made me start doing within a month of our marriage to help save money. He was right. I figure I do a conservative 6 cuts a year at a conservative savings of $10 a cut. Then add the 3 boys X @15 cuts a year. Total saved so far: @$3000.00 in haircuts alone. We don't usually think about things like this, but all those little savings really add up over your lifetime.
Total groceries this week,Feb 21-27 $91.00. Weekly average since January 24: $97.00. Meals this week: beef stew, chicken/rice, white chicken chili, pizza...and I lost my list, so I can't remember the rest.
