My Food Budget Update 2011 - March Update
Another month has come and gone, which means I have to sit down and figure out the damage to the food budget. I knew it would be under budget this month - the big box of apples my friend passed on to me, along with the oranges from my ex's tree, meant I haven't had to buy fruit for the last two weeks. If I didn't have those, I know I'd be toeing that $200 mark really really closely.
Here is the screenshot of my March Budget Sheet (you should be able to click on it to get a larger version):
The recent increase in food prices has startled me to no end. Egg prices went up 60 cents for the 18-packs, which means I buy less, and the few condiments that we do eat seem to be more and more expensive. I have a feeling that I'll have to spend one of my "non-kid weekends" revising my price book. *sigh* That's a super job in itself but the benefits are well worth it.
