Feeling Like a Frugal Failure!

I was trying to figure out why I wasn't posting anything.

It hit me tonight...

I am feeling like a frugal failure.

Then I got to thinking, I have been frugal.

I have not needed to shop very much because of our stockpile. I have been going to Aldi, Big Lots and Fresh Market.

My grocery budget is not where I want it to be but that is because I have been stocking up on meat! We have been eating out of the freezer for the past year plus so I haven't had to spend money on any beef. We are now out of that meat...so of course we needed to get a little bit more.

I do have some grocery deals to share with you all - those will be posted tomorrow.

Then main reason I feel like we haven't been frugal is because I said I did not want to eat out at all this month. This has not happened.

We have food in the house but our plans have changed during our days. We have the money to spend but I didn't want to eat out. It is literally starting to make me feel sick thinking about going out to eat.

Dinner at home tastes so much better right now.

{Alora and I did have a girls day this past Saturday. We headed to IKEA which meant two times eating out. We even went out as a family Friday night for mexican.}

I just need to get over it.

Life happens.

We are in a different season right now.

Trying to figure out what our normal is going to be.

I have some posts planned for this week so stay tuned!!!

How are you doing being frugal?!


  1. You do a great job at budgeting! It's nice to have a break every now and then. A budget isn't supposed to hold you captive, it's a guideline. If you're way off, then just get back on, learn where you detoured and move forward frugally! Go forth and buy some Aldi grass-fed beef!

    1. Thank you, Cara! Does our Aldi have grass fed beef? I haven't been there this week!
