For those of you who have been following my grocery review, here is my update for the entire month of January!
Groceries to date, January 1 – 31, 2014:
Fruits and Veggies: $82.06/33%
Animal Products: $72.11/29%
Fats and Oils: $3.49/1%
Total January 1 – 31: $245.02
I am happily surprised by the $245.02! I really thought we were spending closer to $500 per month on groceries! Granted, I normally count purchases like toilet paper, paper towels, etc in my calculations, so it’s good to know how much is food versus house products.
I know that I am a nerd, but I look forward to analyzing our grocery budget some more over the next few months to find our average spending on groceries as well as what items we normally purchase. I am trying to enjoy pursuit of frugal living so that we might be the best stewards of the money we have been blessed with.
Please share with me if you think this amount is high or low compared to your budget! Also, we love hearing about cheap but quality places to shop at 🙂 Looking forward to discussion!
