Stop Budget Time
So Schmoop and I have been reviewing our finances and have come to the conclusion that we are spending too much. We had a plan to pay off our second mortgage before we had kids and at this rate we're not having kids for like 10 years, so changes had to be made. There are alot of spaghetti, beans and lentils in my future and not so much jumbo lump crab cake. We did splurge on a Sunday Paper subscription, I plan on couponing ourselve towards financial freedom and savings. Too bad they don't usually do coupons on flour, butter, sugar, eggs, etc; since we've been doing the bake by scratch stuff. I have noticed that I've been able to scrimp on our grocery budget to fit in our organic produce so I'm pretty confident that with a little more ingenuity we can make this work.
