Monday is grocery night. I make dinner Sunday- Thursday, and we eat out Friday & Saturday.
Tonight while out shopping, I wondered where I stood on the grocery spluring/saving scale.
In general, I'm not much of a saver, per se. Let's just keep it at that (wyatt). But I want to make sure I'm not going overboard on groceries either. So you need to help me out.
This week I'm making:
Pork Taco's w/Carrot Cilantro Slaw
Barefoot Contessa's Pappa al Pomodoro
This Autumn Chop Salad
Chicken & Stuffing Casserole
At the store tonight I purchased ingredients for these recipes, trying to get the best quality where I feel it matters, and store brand where it doesn't. Plus, I also purchased some fillers- some edamame, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, eggs, bread, milk ect... the usuals.
I spent $120. I usually come in around $100 per week on food. Is this about what you're spending? I really, really hope I'm not setting myself up here. Because if I'm WAY off, I'm not sure I'll know how and where to cut back. Any tips in that area would be helpful too. I also want to make a point of noting that my family is very on board for paying more for healthier foods, so that won't change. It's unfortunate that the junk is what's cheap.
