End of the Month Wrap-Up!

July is coming to an end and August is a brand new month!! The beginning of each month is almost like New Years for me. I have new ambitions, new goals, new ideas... new resolutions. But before I share any of those things, I have to wrap up July! How do I do that?

Here's a few things:

Clean out that fridge!! I have onions, bell peppers, strawberries and mangoes to chop and put away in the freezer. I'm looking forward to some end of the summer refreshing fruit smoothies! Frozen fruit is great to use instead of ice! And I'll use the bell peppers and onions for fajitas!

Make baby food. This is really one of those goals for August. However, I have some carrots that are going to go bad and some bananas that are just ripe. Don't wanna throw 'em away!! I'll probably throw in some of those yummy mangoes too!

Re-evaluate my budget for next month. This is one of those things that is consistently being fine tuned.

Reorganize my coupons. I will throw away July expired coupons and highlight August expiration dates. That way, I will be aware on any coupons that I've been wanting to use and are about to expire.

That's what I have pending on my checklist... I'm going to focus on these things before I compile my August list... I only have one day left, so I'd best be off to wrap the month up!!

Great ideas to wrap up the month. I especially like the tip to throw away expired coupons and hi-lite August coupons. Its a great way to stay on top of expiration dates, which normally sneak up on you pretty fast.

Rachel - to make things a little easier, if I have a coupon insert that has both a good coupon and an expired coupon, I just take a Sharpie and cross through the expired one.
