Well, we have improved. I'm sure we can still do better, but we have gone from spending $419.56 on groceries in the month of January to $272.00 in February, and then down again to $251.23 in March. While I may be making more than the two trips a month I was originally alloting myself, I have been writing lists and trying to preplan meals. It seems to help. Now i just need to make sure I remember the lists and coupons next time I go to hannafords.
