I would pay off the smaller ones and free up the money.

Right now we dont have much breathing room and it would make me feel more secure to not have to count pennies at the end of the month.
Am I right here? What do I say to win him over?
AFM, groceries are killing us. I didn't even buy anything crazy. I did buy about 40 pork chops for freezer meals. But that was only $30 of the bill-they were on a great sale for boneless chops. And I made 9 freezer meals out of them. So now I have basil/balsamic pork chops, citrus pork chops, Honey Garlic pork chops, Bourbon street pork chops, and Schwenkabraten all in the freezer. I need to start stocking the freezer before my surgery next month. I was pretty impressed though because I had ALL of the other ingredients in the house and I literally only had to buy the pork to do 9 meals. IDK, it just seems like groceries have gone up so much I can't stay on budget. I've only got about $70 left in my envie for the whole month and we have 2/3 of the month left. Other than that I really only bought produce and milk/eggs. My bill was $100. Then we've all been sick and we ran out of decongestant and cough meds. Getting meds for all of us ran $60. We're feeling some better today but we're all still tired.
