Weekly grocery haul & meal plan


October is the month of becoming organised and focused... oh yes indeedy!...and this is the beginning of documenting my meal plans and grocery shops, not only on YouTube, but on this here blog.

This week's meal plan is tasty, simple and budget friendly; an ongoing theme whilst we continue with our journey to becoming debt free.

So, here we go!

Journey to debt freedom




My goodness, it's been a while hasn't it!   A lot of things have happened over the past couple of years where I've made only a sporadic appearance in my little corner of the internet at this here blog, but October 2016 is where I'll begin from. 

In October 2016 we officially got sick and tired of being sick and tired with our finances and began working to Dave Ramsey's 7 step baby plan.

In December 2016 we completed Step 1 which was to build a small (baby) emergency fund and January 2017 saw us begin our first month of working towards Baby Step 2.  

Baby Step 2 is to clear all debt (except mortgage) and our goal is to become debt free by January 2019.

This is going to be a record of our journey to getting there.

Every journey has a beginning and this is where we began:

The 'BIG' once-a-month grocery haul



The meal plan for August is complete and the main food shop is done and dusted. Who cares if we're almost at the end of the first full week of August?  Better late than never I say!
