Household Helps: Grocery Money

Setting aside a certain amount of money for groceries each month can be a helpful way of keeping a handle on spending. But what about when that isn’t enough and you find yourself short on grocery cash before the next period?

Split your total amount apart into the number of weeks in your period.

So if you pull grocery cash once a month…split your total into 4. Keep 1/4 out of the first week and set the remaining aside. Then each week, pull 1/4 more out.

Monthly: $800

Week 1; $200
Week 2: $200
Week 3: $200
Week 4: $200

No more stressing because you need vegetables and milk the last week before you pull money again. You have fresh money each week!
