Fall Leaves

Fall 1

Fall 3

Fall 2

Some New England fall pictures for you. I took these last weekend. I do love the fall.

I was going over my new budget today trying to figure out a plan to get myself on track with my groceries so I can stop cheating all the time. I took an average over the past nine weeks and I realized that I've been spending almost $100 per week on food, just for myself. That's ridiculous. And most of it has been on expensive takeout lunches, like Whole Foods. I really need to learn to plan and shop better. My budget for food is only $50 per week, think I can do it? Any tips? I could definitely use some help! I am a single girl, I work 2 jobs and go to school so I don't have a lot of time to cook so basically I need things that are cheap and easy. Ok, Grey's is on, gotta go for now!

Gorgeous! You should sell your photos Jenny; I'm sure you'd make some extra dough.

I can't say I have a lot of tips because my weekly spending on food is ridiculous (I kind of allow myself it because I love to cook and experiment so much), but if you buy fruits and veggies that are in season and local (less travel means less expensive), stock up on easy to find gluten-free grains like rice and corn meal (to make polenta/grits/muffins), you're sure to save a bit. Also, during a typical week, I make 95% of my meals which, when compared to a meal from whole foods, saves me a bit of cash.

Wow, those photos are so beautiful. Like a post card.

Take care.
