New Food Budget

January 11th, 2016 at 06:23 pm

My mom left on Saturday to relocate and live with my sister. Now that it is just me, I need a new food budget. I went to the grocery store on Sunday and spent $39.93. I did a meal plan for the week, and if I can stick to it, I shouldn't need to buy any more food until next Sunday. This is the hard part! I don't really like cooking and after a long day at work I sometimes cave in and just pick up something for dinner on the way home. I have been downloading some crockpot recipes to try, and plan to start making one each Sunday. I hope to be able to stay at or below $40 a week for groceries to start, and then see how things go. I anticipate some weeks will be lower, until I need to restock on more expensive items. I also filled my gas tank up and I was almost on empty, only $19.82! Love these low gas prices!
