I try to minimize “extra” shopping trips and “extra” work as much as possible since it seems there is never enough time in a day to get everything done.I particularly like to limit grocery shopping. I do this by meal planning for a month, stocking up, and shopping lists. Not only does this save me time; it also saves me money!

Some shopping strategies I am employing:

-Once a month Costco run if necessary

-Every other week Trader Joe’s shopping trip

-CSA/Raw Milk pick-up once a week

-Azure Standard pick up once a month

-Target once a month if necessary

-Abundant Harvest or Farmer’s Market 1x/week
