Hi everyone! I've been reading everyone elses' blogs and thought I'd write one of my own. I love all the ideas about lists and coupon organizers. My problem is that I'm trying to save money by grocery shopping and fixing my own lunches and dinners, but I work at the hospital 3-4xs a week and so I always end up eating what's there and wasting money on groceries. I'm trying harder to stay more motivated to get up earlier and fix my meals, but when I look to a 10-12 hour work day (usually 11a-11p) I end up more motivated to sleep later and run out of time getting ready for work. On my days off I am usually tired or busy living my life that I forget what I have and end up eating out again!
I guess what I wanted to ask was if anyone had any ideas about how I could try better tactics at time management? Its just me and my dog at home, so I don't have to worry about anyone else right now. I also have a frig at work that I can use. Its just so much easier (yet worse for you in fat and in finances) to eat out or at work.
