Project: Food Budget, Week 6
I am participating in Project: Food Budget. I will be continuing my series on leftovers casserole, or whatever Frankenstein Leftovers Creation I make out of my pantry and my fridge leftovers every Thursday.
I started once-a-month cooking, based on some of the recipes found at Onceamonthmom.com. So, instead of sticking to a weekly budget this go-around, I'm doing a monthly budget. I'm reducing our monthly budget from $400 to $300 in an attempt to really challenge us.
This week, we spent $0 on groceries! YAY! Fireworks! Pow! Pow! Unfortunately we had already broken our budget last week, but we're setting a new goal and trying to stay close to where we're at now.
Budget: $300 ($75 for the week)
Actual: $0 +$328 previous weeks = $328 total
So, we're still over both the weekly and the monthly, but we haven't spent any more money. I'm hopeful we can stay under $350 for the month.
