Project Food Budget: Weeks 28 and 29

Food Budget Piggybank

What’s left this month:

Grocery: $476.67
Costco: $(78.44)
Eating out: $113.69
Beer/wine: $60

I blew the Costco budget again — I think I’ll have to raise it to $300 next month. Although, in my defense, Dan went Costco shopping, and he got things for his office, plus some “off-list” things. Also, he bought individually packaged snacks, which is more expensive. So I think $300 is realistic with some adjustments to how we shop. So far, eating out is good, and so is the beer and wine budget! Whoo hoo!

Menu:

Thursday: Pizza (from freezer, not from scratch) and salad
Friday: Vegetarian soft tacos
Saturday: Spaghetti and marinara sauce
Sunday: Black beans, tofu, and broccoli over brown rice
Monday: Bella’s house
Tuesday: Brinner
Wednesday: left overs

  1. loving the new blog design! so bright and cheerful. 🙂

    and it doesn’t look like you did so bad with the budgeting. do you substract the non-food items from your budget? i don’t include items that are outside of our food budget in ours…just a thought!

    • Yes, when it comes to Costco, I do subtract the non-food items. We buy paper products, soap, toothpaste, cleaning supplies, etc. there too. I’ve also had crazy-busy weekends, which has meant more “convenience” food that I strictly like. It goes in cycles, that’s all! Thanks!
