Menu Plan Monday - Taking A Break!

Just wanted to let you know that we have guests coming in town tomorrow, and they will be staying with us for 2 weeks...

This will affect a couple of different things:

1. I am not going to do Menu Plan Monday this week or next. Since we have other people in the house, it's harder to plan meals ahead of time before they get here. Usually, when they come, we kind of plan the meals as we go. Also, my friend Blake is an amazing cook, so she usually does quite a bit of cooking as well. It's fun to tag-team! =)

2. I will be spending more on groceries. I will probably do a lot more impulse-buying than I normally do, depending on what meals we decide to cook. My Super Savings Saturday posts will either be a little different, or might not exist. I'm going to play it by ear. We'll see! The awesome thing is that through budgeting wisely and reducing our grocery budget to $35 a week, I have stashed away a little sum of money to spend on extra groceries during these 2 weeks! I even have right around $35 extra left over from the November and December grocery budgets (we were under both months!)

I always plan my meals, and I always spend less than $35 a week on groceries (sometimes a lot less). You know what I have to say? It's okay to go a little over for 2 weeks. Yes, I'm really saying that. Sometimes you have to loosen up just a bit, have some fun, and relax. I know it will be more difficult to stick to a budget the next 2 weeks, but that is okay.

Anyways, I'm super excited about our friends coming! We always have such a blast! And like I said in a previous post, I will probably be a little light on the blogging still. I'll be back to blogging 100% around January 13th.
