FOOD ~ July 2015

Published August 3, 2015   Posted in Budgets

We are over again this month. As I mentioned in the July Budget we had to stock up on some necessary staples such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and peanut butter. These supplies should last us a few months. So you’ll see that reflected in the Canned Goods area below. Otherwise pretty good month and […]

FOOD ~ May 2015

As you may have seen from the May budget, we had a rough month budget wise for groceries. We went way way over though made up for most of it using our fun money accounts. To show the full extent of our overages (due to 4 family visits, hosting book club and a Memorial Day BBQ) I’m […]

As I mentioned in the budgeting article, we did very well on our grocery budget this month. However, we knew we would. Not only is February a shorter month and therefore we have fewer days to cook and eat but we also spent the whole last week in Florida where my in-laws covered all our […]

FOOD – January 2015

Published February 5, 2015   Posted in How to Save

Audio introduction This month we managed to stay under our $300 grocery budget even though we made every single meal all month long except for the 4 days we were in San Francisco. In truth….it wasn’t that hard! Meal planning for the whole month my making use out of bulk buying options from Costco makes […]
