Background: It’s the beginning of the month. so the grocery budget starts over for the month. Since I’m a tight-fisted guy who really wants to squeeze as much life out of a nickel as possible, I’m doing the grocery shopping. The missus is sitting next to me in the truck as we depart one of our grocery stops.
Her: So what happens if we wind up with money left over at the end of the month if we go under budget?
Me: Well, I have a few ideas.
Her: Like what? Do we carry it over to the next month? Buy ourselves some luxury foods?
Me: Well, we could do that. I was thinking we’d take any extra and work on buying more food to put back into storage.
Her: I was thinking the same thing!
And that’s synergy, folks.
