New Hobby!

From when I was a kid, I have always been fascinated with coins and always wanted to collect them. In fact, my grandfather had a big stack of old coins which I coveted but I never mentioned it to him and he gave it to my cousin.

Recently, my interest in it has been coming back. I don't want to invest any money in it - my idea is just to do something small. I want to collect quarters of all US states. Once I'm done with this, I want to collect a quarter from each year as far back as I can go.

And then we'll see from there... I'm excited about this. I will post again about this when I'm done collecting all the US States quarters. I currently have 41 US state quarters - I still need 9.

Saving money on groceries

Recently, we had some family visiting for a few months and as a result, our grocery bills shot through the roof. It's back to being just us again and I'm trying to reduce our grocery expenses.

One of the reasons our grocery bill gets so high is we buy a lot of groceries at the local indian grocery store and it tends to be the biggest part of our grocery budget.

Use a discount grocer or warehouse club - options for me are Trader Joe's, Market Basket, Costco, ALDI's and Sam's ClubChoose your primary store and learn its layoutWatch the store flyer each weekMake a meal plan and grocery listStock up big on sale-priced non perishablesListen to uptempo music while you shopFigure out the price per unit when buying a specific non perishable itemShop your pantry - meal plan around the items in stock in your pantry So I'm going to start meal planning soon and use the rest of these tips to reduce our grocery costs every month. I will keep updating on how that's going.

Corn and Capsicum Tikki

I made this Corn and Capsicum Tikki yesterday and it was really yummy. I forgot to take pictures but it was fairly simple to make and pretty fast. It is pretty healthy and a good evening snack.
