I’m here with some budget tips. This is especially important as we are coming up on the holiday season! I am usually pretty stocked up on the basics and necessities and that helps to limit frivolous spending when I really don’t need to. I stock up on these things during sales and usually don’t have to stock up again for a few months. I am a family of one, so this may not work for my followers with families. (Sorry guys!) But, for my single independent people out there, I’m here for you!
What I Always Have Stocked
- Chicken and seafood (in the freezer)
- Canned veggies
- Pasta and pasta sauces
- Other non-perishable items
- Paper towels and toiletry items (in the linen closet)
I like to stock all of these because if I ever have unexpected expenses, I always have the basics needed in order to make it through until my next paycheck. I don’t go overboard with shopping normally, but this helps to limit my spending throughout the weeks. Usually, I only by fresh fruits and vegetables each week. Whenever I make something new, I either follow a recipe or try to use up the things that are going bad soon. This helps to make sure that food isn’t going to waste.
