This month was another big month for buying bulk. Some big goals were accomplished this month though.
- We finished purchasing meat for the winter. I may need a few whole chickens to make chicken broth but otherwise we shouldn't have to buy any meat the rest of the winter.
- We finished with the rest of our cold storage items and should need minimal produce for the rest of the winter.
So here's what we bought:
Safeway - $10
Bananas and Lunchmeat for snacks and lunches.
Zaycon Foods - $50
80 pounds of chicken breast (thanks to credits I had earned!)
Total for the month:
As I've mentioned in previous months posts, our normal food budget is $200 and I'm allowed to add an extra $25 per our irregular income budget. The last 2 months I've over-spent this amount but I've been stocking up on bulk items. That stocking up is over now so our food budget should go back to under the amount we allot. I will have pictured of our updated cold storage up soon!
I know that our eating habits are not typical so make sure you contact me or comment with any questions! You can also find some examples of our meal plans and get my ebook on meal planning and how to make it work for your family.
Do you have a food budget? How did you do this month?
