We are well into June and the numbers are in for the food budget. I did take some help from food storage, so I guess it's not a true reckoning of how we did money wise for June. Our garden is slowly producing, but we didn't plant enough to make a dent in the budget.
Drumroll please.....the number ended at: $215.62.
Here is a estimate of what we used from food storage:
3 cans of fruit
1 container of applesauce
1 container of peanut butter
1 bottle of spicy brown mustard
4 or 5 boxes of cereal (this is a total guess, I really have no clue, sadly!)
1 container of Old Fashioned oats
1 box muffin mix
That would range about $20 or so dollars. This month (July) the food budget is a bit different as come the last few days in July there will be about 53 people at my house for a reunion. (That is the current count.) I do try to veer away from Ramen when guests come over... Right now my food budget is set at about $400 for the month. The reunion is only a few days long, but as a buffer I plan on using up some of my food storage.
How did you do this month on your food budget? I am moving soon and I found out that there is a Kroger about 20 minutes away! I am excited to get my feet wet with some serious couponing!
