  1. Thankful - This Thanksgiving

    and grow. Consider your family, friends, people who sincerely care about you,
    your work, your faith, your home, your community, the joys you've known,
    the things you have to look forward to.

    So for starters here are the month and category:

    January~freezer items
    February~pantry items
    March~beauty aids
    April~laundry items

    Your grocery bill is likely one of the largest parts of your living expenses. If you were to rank them from largest to smallest, it would probably fall just after mortgage (or rent), energy and car payments. You canít do much to lower a mortgage payment or car payment, so trimming as much as you can from your weekly food bill makes a lot of sense.
