Show and Tell Tuesday

It's the first Show and Tell Tuesday of 2017. I am super excited to link up with Andrea today and share Steal & Splurge. It's all about how my family saves and what we feel is worth the splurge! Below I added the image for the 2017 topics...just in case you are a fellow blogger and want to join in on the fun! ;)

Steal vs. Splurge: The first thing that comes to my mind is groceries. We eat at home a lot. During the week it's very rare that we eat out anywhere. Within my grocery shopping there are lots of things I feel I have found the steal but then there are a few items where one would say we/I splurge...

It wasn't until last summer when I discovered Aldi, I mean really discovered it. ;) I can't do all my shopping there so it isn't the easiest grocery shopping week but it does help the budget. Shopping at Aldi is a steal for sure...and the best part is we aren't giving up any quality while getting better prices. (That totally sounds like a commercial. They didn't pay me to say that. Ha ha!)

Splurge as far as grocery goes...when I say I cook at home I really cook. I make full meals...not from a box. I had never had a boxed lasagna, anything with the word "helper," or a dinner without a dessert before I met Mark. I guess I come by the wanting to cook a full meal naturally.  (Thanks mom! ) So I splurge when it comes to trying new meals and the fun ingredients that comes with that...

When I think splurge I think about our fun stuff we do with the kids. I also have to mention I don't think it has to all do with money. We spend lots of time together as a family. Mark works Monday-Thursday so we really make it a point to spend lots of time together throughout the weekend. We have "Friday Fundays." It doesn't always cost a money but we do try to do something special each Friday together. With days like this I think we include our kids in a lot. This is just a way I think we splurge as a family.

I can't wait to read others Steal vs. Splurge...either link up or comment ways you steal and splurge. Yahoo for link-ups!
