New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Years!
With the new year I have been thinking about what kinds of things I could resolve to do and actually do it.
Last year on a blog that I read frequently (like almost everyday), Fabulessly Frugal, a woman named Mavis made a goal of only spending $1,200 on groceries for the entire year! Isn't that amazing? She is a couponer (like me) and is obviously experienced. So, I decided to try to spend less on groceries. That is the point of couponing, right?
So, my goal is to spend $1,500 on groceries this year. I'm pretty worried but I really feel like I can do it. That would come out to $125 a month. When I would coupon before Addie was born I would spend about $20-$25 on groceries every week. I really think I can stick to this again.

Here are some ways that I'm planning on achieving my goal:
1. Couponing (was that a given?)
2. Get a bountiful basket possibly once a month (I do want us to eat healthy too)
3. Have a garden, last year's was great, I hope we can do that again
4. This also means eating from our pantry more (which is why we have a pantry right?)
Anyway, I am going to try to blog about my grocery shopping experiences so that I stay on track and I have people to stay accountable to. I can use a lot of encouragement and help so if you have any ideas, I'm willing to hear them!
Tomorrow starts a new year of shopping (luckily there are doublers at Albertson's to kick it off right)!

What a great goal! Is the $1,500 for only food, or does it include things like detergent and toiletries?

A new yr's decision is a way of life, most fashioned in the Western Hemisphere but also determined in the eastern Hemisphere, where a character makes a promise to do an act of self-growth or something moderately satisfactory, similar to opening doors for men and women opening from New year's Day.I've some just right work expertise with a Outdoor Media Agencies in Goa and my words are evidently situated on what I felt through such tactics in the past.
