Sept 7th Healthy Food Budget: $106.90 / Balance $293.10
Dining Out: $47.42
Where I Spent My Grocery Dollars This Week
7 Acre Farm $7.50 for 2 doz jumbo eggs
Open Meadow Farm $17.47 for beefalo strip steak (farm meat stashed in freezer is paid in full, so technically no real money is actually spent, but I apply the cost to my budget as we consume it.)
Local Farm $13.33 for local produce
Market Basket $7.49 for ice cream & Newmans Own frozen white pizza – cheaper than getting take-out!
Market Basket $13.69 for Applegate Farms deli chicken, vidalia onion, bananas, quart Organic Valley half & half cream, organic cheese, Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips
About My Healthy Budget
My healthy budget goal is to eat seasonal (local if possible,) home-cooked meals while sticking to a $400 monthly budget for all food including groceries, dining out,
entertaining, vitamins/supplements, and gardening.
There’s two of us eating (mostly) 3 meals per day. DH occasionally eats take-out lunch at work, & that $ comes out of his personal cash stash.
