Food Budget Update

No I haven't forgotten about the food budget, even though I wish I could:-) I balanced the checkbooks today so I have renewed vigor, if you know what I mean, wink, wink.


I went to Meijers last week Wednesday. I spent $55. Fruit a few veggies, yogurt, tortillas, wine, etc, etc.

Then Friday I stopped at the health store for 3 loaves of bread and a dozen eggs- $18. Ouch!

Today was the dutch store to the tune of $2.

So I'm at $205 so far with two weeks left. $95 is possible I suppose. Our bread habit kills the budget. Lula's bread cost $5.79 a loaf!! I'm optimistic, as the gardening season is upon us and we have quite a bit of meat in the freezer. And hey if we can make that box of wine last for the next two weeks we're golden:-)

We are hoping to make a Trader Joe's run so that could totally blow things out of the water but we'll see.

Wow! Good job at staying so on. Like you said, if the wine lasts and you don't need to make a Costco run--because that ALWAYS ruins the budget--you should be good. :)
