Military paydays are very predictable – the day of and the day after the commissary will be packed full of people shopping. Of course that can also mean the shelves are not as well stocked. We went shopping today, we didn’t need that many things and only had an hour so of course we couldn’t casually take our time.

We walked out after spending $185, really a good deal since we got veggies, some beef, some chicken and a few bath products. We probably only spent $150 on groceries. I know we’ll have to be back before next payday, but so far we’ve spent $450. We are close to the budget I’ve been trying to stay under. I am reading a book about coupons right now (finally found the one I won months ago!) and hopefully I’ll be able to implement some of the ideas to save.
