Project: Food Budget, Week 18

Food Budget Piggybank

I guess I was basking in the glow of my success last week, and I completely forgot to set any kind of budget for this week. Also, since last shopping trip was about stocking up, I figured another trip would just be for any odds and ends I felt we needed.

I did run to the store on Tuesday, to the tune of $15.78, and we had breakfast out (also on Tuesday) for $12.68. So this week’s expenses aren’t overwhelming at all.

Looking ahead, it’ll be another week of odds and ends shopping. We need sliced cheese for sandwiches, Dan needs deli meat, etc. As far as menus, I want to make baked burritos, granola, pretzels, slow cooker applesauce, and dal with rice. I get my CSA box tonight, so we’ll see what additional goodness awaits!

Grocery: $75
CSA: $34
Costco: $50

    • Valerie, you’re so funny!

      CSA = Community Supported Agriculture. Here, that means local farms enlist subscribers and then deliver fresh produce (and in some cases/places mushrooms, cheese, beef, chicken and eggs) to a pick up location. Most farms grow organically, also.

      Our monthly grocery store budget is probably between $400 and $600. We do one big “stock up” trip (canned goods, flour/sugar/etc.) a month, and then smaller weekly trips for odds and ends like deli goods, produce (on weeks I don’t get my CSA), milk, etc.
