???????????????????????????????Woo Hoo!  The first four-week cycle is complete, and we stayed under budget.  (Just barely.)

This year, I’m aiming to spend $6,500 total for food for my family.  That amount includes groceries only, NOT toiletries.  We rarely eat out, so the food I buy to prepare at home is what we eat.

Since my husband is paid bi-monthly, the goal is to spend no more than $500 every 4 weeks.  (I don’t calculate the amount spent on a monthly basis but on an every 4 week cycle.)

We try to eat organic veggies and fruit as much as possible, and we try to buy meat that is grass-fed and organic.  We have multiple food intolerances, with the biggies being gluten, corn, and dairy.

Since my mom stayed with us January 2nd – 8th, we’re adding $25 to the budget to cover the expense of feeding her.  Therefore, this four week cycle, I’ll be spending $525 instead of $500.

Here’s what we bought from January 23rd to January 29th:

Sprout’s – $4.30


Albertson’s – $3.98

I didn’t take a picture, but we bought two 32 packs of water.

Costco & Fry’s – $10.67



POW WOW – $10


TOTAL:  $28.95
TOTAL for this 4 week cycle: $516.35
Remaining for this 4 week cycle: $8.65

A Recap of This Series:

Week One $241.72

Week Two $185.88
