I have decided that our grocery budget for this month will be $200.
I noticed on our mint.com account that we've come in UNDER budget with our groceries for most months, so lets see if we can keep up with the trend.
Today, I stocked up on alot of items.
Instead of going to the store every week to week and a half, I bought 2 gallons of milk and froze one. I am hoping not to have to go to the store until after the 15th. I also bought some fish for us to eat in the next two weeks, a small turkey ham for our breakfasts, and a roasting chicken (which makes 2 meals for us.)
I also stopped by Nickles Bakery Outlet on my way to Aldi's. Oh, how I love that store.
At any rate, the budget is $200 for the month of October.
As of today, I spent exactly $69 from 3 stores. It is odd that it ended up being a whole number, but it is what it is.
What is your grocery budget?
