So this month I’m meal planning and grocery shopping a little earlier than normal. The reason being that (and I’m not sure how but maybe due the amount of weeks in a month changing ) ... that I need to do my big grocery shop on a week where we have a higher income. Obviously shopping for a month the amount of money I need to spend is much higher than for a week. So as you will see when I was going through everything to see what I had left you will see I still have quiet a bit left over from July. So that’s great less food I have to buy ! So my budget for my monthly grocery shop is $400, but after my planning and shopping list was complete my estimate spend is sitting at $329. If I’ve forgotten anything or see something I think we need I have room to move. So be sure to watch the matching grocery haul to see how I went !
