What We Have Been Eating Lately

Food costs have been insanely expensive but last week I caught an amazing sale! When sales are offered that are that good it’s time to stock up. One piece of advice is don’t be afraid to pre-order sale items especially meat. When I saw the sale ad I called and ordered 20 lbs of bonelessContinue reading “What We Have Been Eating Lately”

Week 32-36 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

Happy September 1st! Time for the August grocery shopping update. I budgeted $400 for groceries this month because there were five weeks in August. Total spent on groceries for August $438.39 that’s $38.39 over budget. I’ll have to do better in September for sure but considering I was $60 under budget last month I stillContinue reading “Week 32-36 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 29-31 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

I feel so much better about how much money we spent on food this month. I really tried not to buy any more than what I bought in my regular grocery shopping trips on Sundays. We did go out a couple of times this month which I am fine with. Twice in one month isContinue reading “Week 29-31 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 28 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

Last week I spent $52.64 at the grocery store because I had so much left over from the week before. We ate pretty well considering none of us ever have the same schedule. The cherry cobbler I made is really easy and can be used for any summer fruit. Here’s the recipe: Sour Cherry CobblerContinue reading “Week 28 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 25 – 27 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

We have had a rough few weeks with food in our house. My son has never been the type of kid to eat us out of house and home but two weeks ago after a trip to the ER we had a long discussion on the importance of food and what happens to our bodiesContinue reading “Week 25 – 27 What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 24 – What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

I am a little late in getting this post out but last week I spent $67.16 for groceries because I had so much left over in the freezer from the week before. We did go out for dinner once and lunch after the Farmers market because we were exhausted from opening day. Sunday dinner wasContinue reading “Week 24 – What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 23 – What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries

I have given us $500 as a grocery budget for the month of June because for us there are 5 paychecks. Last week I spent $148 on groceries because I had a mishap with Misfits and they sent me a load that I didn’t want (I should have read the fine print). Last week weContinue reading “Week 23 – What We Ate and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 22 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries

It’s been a few weeks since I posted what we are eating and grocery costs. My goal was to keep costs under $100 per week but I just haven’t gotten there yet and this week is no exception. I spent $110.00 at the Marketplace and even though I canceled my subscription to Misfit Market theyContinue reading “Week 22 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 17 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries

It’s been a few weeks since I posted what we are eating and grocery costs. In week 15 I spent about $200 on all kinds of fun stuff so for weeks 16 and 17 I haven’t spent much at all. Week 16 was $48.96 and this week I spent $49.17. The only meat I boughtContinue reading “Week 17 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries”

Week 14 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

Wowsers did prices go sky high in just over a week. I hadn’t really noticed that large of an increase until this week’s shopping trip. Eggs and butter seemed to be the biggest jump for me. $4/doz for eggs and $5/lb for generic butter. Yikes! I asked the guys about the price and Mr. ChrisContinue reading “Week 14 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.
