Project Food Budget: Week 8

Food Budget Piggybank

We did okay this week. Dan picked up some extras at Costco, which he is wont to do. He’s not as bad as he is at the State Store, though!

Food = Budget, $75; Actual, 73.43
Costco = Budget, $100; Actual, $128.39
Eating out = Budget, $50; Actual, $42.60

Today, I’m making cookies and a lentil loaf (recipe on Monday if it turns out good). Tomorrow, we will probably be having dinner out with children and friends in from out of town. I will spend the rest of the weekend cooking, including “Beefy” Cheesy Macaroni, slow cooker minestrone soup, and maybe baked oatmeal or muffins.

I think our big shopping run will be to the deli this week. Also, we need formula… the weaning to milk is not going well, but that’s a post for another day.

Food = $75
Eating out = $50
Formula = $25

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving today, I hope you have a safe and blessed one. And if not, I hope your day is great anyway!
