Fit Foodie: The looooong pay period

My husband and I wince when the few long pay periods come along.  Currently, we are on a 19 day one and it is rough in the menu plan department.  We could have done a little less on the last pay’s groceries but we changed our budgeting plan to calculate the days in the pay period […]
