Well we are 2 weeks in and I reckon we failed. Husband ate cheese so I am a tad cranky.
We (me) had more or less decided that it was alright to buy good specials this month as long as we didn't eat them. This is the way I shop, there are a few things that I only buy if/when they are on special. Cheese, marg, baked beans, icecream are some items bought this way. Last week cheese was a great special, we had none so I bought a block so as to have it come August. I didn't hide it well enough though and yesterday husband came in late, was hungry and wanted something quick and easy, I wasn't home to make anything...so he made himself a pizza. With cheese!
Bugger! Double bugger. He says it's OK but of course it's not. It is a fail.
I came home tired and hungry and cooked myself some fish and an egg, quick, easy and sticking with the plan. I am the winner! But we failed.
We have *discussed* this and we will still continue but I need to make things easier and have stuff that he likes ready and waiting for him. Men! there's that saying, "they don't always follow the rules but they go out and collect firewood to keep the place warm and cull the roosters so you don't have to so are worth keeping around" I need to remind myself that sometimes!
