So, for March I had a $100 grocery budget. However, I didn't have a strict challenge on eating out. We stayed under our vague budget for eating out, but we both knew it could be better. (Though, for the record, we did have 2 weekend trips this month, so there was eating out along the way which we wouldn't have done at home.) So for April, we decided to make a goal that included all food expenses. $150. This is groceries and eating out. To make it even more fun, our cupboard is pretty bare from last month, and we're moving, so eating out is going to be very tempting. However, we're determined. So if any of you know of any good recipes that are cheap to make and last for several meals (we don't mind leftovers), please share! We're thinking we'll have lots of pasta, rice, potatoes and soup this month. :) Also, this time I think I'll just do weekly updates instead of an update for each shopping trip. (Unless a specific trip is just too amazing not to post.) And hopefully I'll get back to couponing for other stuff as well this month and you'll get updates on that as well.
Budget left: $150
