5Q Friday...on Monday!

I'm not even going to begin to make excuses as to why I've neglected my blog since last Weds! Let's just blame it on.......oh well, LIFE! :O) My life is just crazy, busy right now, but in a good kind of way..LOL! Hopefully, I'll get my act together, and keep on blogging! I love doing 5Q Friday, but I'm just now getting around to it, and I did notice that the linky was closed, but I'm posting it anyway. :O)

1. Groceries are high right now what is easiest way you have found to cut back?
I am paying way too much for groceries these day. It's my own fault though....not planning menus for the week, not being organized enough to know what I have on hand in the pantry and freezers, going to the grocery store numerous times a week, these are all reasons why I'm not saving the money I should in the grocery area. I have done the meal planning, and the coupons/sales, so I know how much I can save on groceries, yet I let my busy life get me in a rut. This is an area I have been trying to do better in, because I know it is doable, so I am seriously going to try to do these few things to cut back on the grocery budget:
  1. Plan a menu for the week
  2. Do inventory of my pantry and freezers and use up some of the things I have on hand.
  3. Make less trips to the store/stick to note when I do go.
  4. Try buying only what I need for the week, instead of trying to "stock up".
2. What are the top 3 things on your "bucket list"? The same 3 things that were on the bucket list last year:
  1. Zip-Line
  2. Take a cooking class.
  3. Go horseback riding on the beach.

3. Would you rather give up AC or heat? I'm convinced I'm about to change life{yippeee..said in my most sarcastic voice} LOL.....so NO heat please...crank up that a/c!!! :O)
STAY COOL!
4. What's your favorite cocktail?? I don't have one...
5. What was your first job & how old were you? I was probably about 10. I delivered newspapers. :O)
