Groceries are expensive, especially when you are trying to eat organic tasty meals. In an attempt to save money until I find a job, we have cut out almost all of our organic regular purchases. We are still eating pretty healthy, but taking a break on the organic. Honestly, our grocery bill has not decreased very much. It’s time to make some more changes, and after reading some blogs and looking at recipes, I have decided to implement a strict grocery budget. We probably won’t be eating super delicious meals, but if it can save us from money for a while, and teach me how to work with a budget. I’m almost afraid to share what my budget is, but to hold myself accountable I think I will. Honestly, I want to spend way less than this, but if I can pull this number off it will be a major improvement.
$50 – 2 People – One Week
Monday – Potato Soup and Salad (We didn’t get the chance to eat this last week)
Tuesday – Chicken Pasta and whole grain baguette
Wednesday – BBQ Chicken Nachos (Leftover from BBQ sandwiches last week)
Thursday – Picadillo, my favorite Cuban dish. Served with Beans and Rice
Friday – Pizza
Saturday – Veggie Pasta
Sunday – Italian Chicken, Rice and Corn
As usual I am linking up with Organizing Junkie for today. What is your family eating this week? How do you stay on a grocery budget?
