For a long time now I’ve been obsessed with personal finance blogs and trying to live a lifestyle that allows us to save money, invest wisely, and hopefully retire early. I am NOT perfect at it. In fact, this blog is partly an attempt to hold myself accountable to our savings and spending goals. Maybe you have different budget demons to battle, but my budget lives and dies at the grocery store. Food and eating out are clearly my family’s weakness. But it’s also one of the things I personally have the most control over, so armed with my Costco membership I wage battle!
