Well, December is over, and we were able to stick to our $750 budget even though we were feeding an additional adult all month long. That’s quite an accomplishment for us as we usually struggle to stay within the $750 budget just for the 5 of us. January might be a challenging month, though, because I’m freezer cooking, and my mom will still be here for the first 14 days of the month.
Just a Few Facts About Us
Our family of 5 chooses to eat mostly organic produce and grass-fed and pasture-raised meats. I’m Paleo, my daughter is semi-Paleo, and the rest of us are gluten free. Everyone except my husband is dairy free. Our goal for the last few months of the year is to spend on average $750 per month on groceries.
