Food Budget Week 3

We went way overboard this week, spending $343.08! This is including a missing receipt that someone held on to too long, so now it gets added into this week.  Annoying. We were also buying stuff for my birthday, and I guess I just disregarded the budget – obviously!

Here’s what we bought:

  • Organic bananas $1.90
  • Bell peppers $14.76
  • Broccoli $3.32

Whew! Going to have to really try and do better to make up for that, and it will take at least a month. My goal for this coming week is to be under $125. We already spent close to that for the week, so there is not really any wiggle room. We’ll just have to make it work with what we have!
