Every end or start of the week, I prefer shopping in bulkâ€¦ This means I check our pantry and drawers to see what I need to refill or add.
Then I come up with a budget and a list of things to getâ€¦ It’s not always to stick to our budget, however at least this saves me from spending money unnecessarily while in the rest of the week.
This is something that I l earned from mom, and he was in charge of the money once Mom brought modern home his check, and there was never a day we ran out of food or non-food items. Things aren’t as difficult for me as they were for our parents when I was young, and but, that doesn’t mean I can spend money eating out every day of the week. I’m crucial on meal prepping and carrying dinner to our place of work, and another thing I do every month is change our air filters in the AC. I live in an section where the A/C is always running for 9 weeks in a year. The rest of the days are mild Wintertide which I find so amazing. Because I have to use the A/C frequently, I have to make sure I upgrade the air filter every week. Failure to do so can affect the way the A/C runs, and also mess with our air quality; My aunt, who is an Heating & A/C professional, is always adamant about replacing the air filters. It’s the best way to keep the A/C running longer, and also improve the conditions in our home, however just prefer the food and non-food items, I also purchase air filters in bulk. There is a Heating & A/C store in city that sells them affordably if you choose to get 2 or more cartons of air filters.
