So far, I’m happy with how things are going. The flex spending sheet is as sparse as ever. My list of April includes : $30 for volleyball dues, $0.12 overage at Target after using a $20 gift card on allergy meds and a salad. A few trips to Aldi have using a visa gift card have happened too. Just lettuce, milk, cake supplies (sugar, cocoa and flour) so far.
The meal plan has gone well. We don’t follow it to the letter at all but that works for us. We move meals around all the time but the basic outline has been great. And having the grocery list based off of that kept things very focused at the store.
