Is it in line with my priorities?<br />How do I want to change how I work?<br />How much do the supermarkets differ? (Quite a bit.)<br />Is it worth ordering groceries online? (Not really, for me.)<br />What’s our typical grocery budget? $200-300 (regular), $500 (holiday) / month<br />How much do we spend on different items? <br />How often do we buy things?<br />Is it worth switching to, say, lactose drops instead of lactose-free milk?<br />How can we change our patterns?<br />Future:<br />What happens if I shift my time away from reading and writing to focus on drawing and meeting people? What’s a good balance point?<br />How do my energy, happiness, and productivity vary day to day? What factors influence those? How can I stack the deck?<br />What am I learning, and how can I share that with others?<br />
