Food Budget weeks 37-40

Got a little behind I guess!

Week 37 we spent about $150 including the farmer’s market

Week 38 we spent about $110 including the farmer’s market

Week 39 we spent $200.80 – stocking up on some stuff

Week 40 we spent a whopping $268.32.  Sprouts had a brand sale, and I took advantage of that, stocking up on cereal and frozen stuff.  We also went to check out the Real Foods Market to score some raw milk, but they were out 😦  We made up for it by spending $85 there 😮

I hope to be more on top of this for the remaining weeks, I mean there are only 12 left!  Then I’m going to have some fun looking up all of these posts again and finding an average for a TRUE budget for the coming year.

I want to do better this coming week, and we really shouldn’t need to buy much at all except for produce.  So that is my goal, to really and truly buy ONLY what we need!!  I can do it.
