One of my goals for 2014 is to be even more frugal than I already am. I feel like I am pretty frugal but around the holidays I get a little off track. We ate dinner out too much, I made too many trips to the store which lead to impulsive buying and I stopped planning weekly shopping trips. I have found that by taking into account the fruits and vegetables that are in season and planning meals around them I often save a bit of money. Right now broccoli is in season and it is a family favorite!
