I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I got back from the grocery store this morning. On the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend, I managed to get in and out of Costco, Safeway and Trader Joes in an hour and 20 minutes. I was so excited at the thought of knocking out the all important grocery shopping errand and not having to worry about leaving the house again over the weekend unless I wanted to - that is until I went to make Paul's birthday cake a few minutes ago and realized that I didn't check how much cocoa was actually contained in the cocoa tin - not even close to enough to make the Chocolate Guinness Cake I promised him.
Savvy Living isn't just about streamlining your spending. It's about streamlining your time as well. Having to make multiple trips to the store chasing after forgotten items is such a waste of time and energy. Today's lesson has been taken to heart and from now on, I'll be checking the actual contents of the items in my pantry instead of just looking for the jars and boxes.
As Henry V so famously said, "Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more".
