Healthy Food Budget: December – January 2014

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my budgeting blog. Mostly because I’ve been busy, but partly because I went embarrassingly WAY over budget spending for December. Who wants to admit failure? Ha!

But I’m facing my failure and posting my numbers so I can forget it & move forward.

December, 2013:
Total Food Spending: $521.52
Dining out: $181.81
Groceries: $339.71

January, 2014:
Total Food Spending: $408.54
Dining out: $181.81
Groceries: $339.71

That’s that! Forget it and move forward!

About My Healthy Budget

My healthy budget goal is to eat seasonal (local if possible,) home-cooked meals while sticking to a $400 $450 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.
