I mentioned we get 80 dollars/week for groceries.
I will admit I went over that total a LOT in the first 6 months or so while we lived here. Just trying to build up the ol food storage and being in a new house means a lot of new expenses.
I did a budget post here.
It pretty well explains the budget and I’d say we’re pretty well on target right now. I would guess that I average around 70 bucks/week for groceries (the other 10 bucks usually goes into a pot to go out to eat together once a month or so). You have to remember I have a 150 dollar Costco budget on top of that. I also have 100 dollars for clothing and household items.
If you included my Costco and food budget together it would be just under 120/week. I have toyed with getting rid of my costco card and just trying to live through Walmart, but I don’t have the fortitude yet. I just renewed my Costco membership. Maybe next year….
Anywho, it’s all detailed out in that post. I just thought I’d share it.
I’m trying to work on budgeting for Christmas. That’s my own personal nightmare, but we’re doing much better then in years past, and I feel good about that.
