May Grocery Totals

Total Spent on Food: $234.73
Store Savings: $258.42 
Manufacturer's Coupons Used: $221.40 

My lowest month yet!  I knew by the last week of the month it was going to be low because I had quite a bit of money in my grocery envelope (that leftover got put on our current debt in the debt snowball-the car-yesterday!)  My goal is to come in at $200 for just one month.  Does $200/month to feed 7 sound unreasonable?   I think I could really do it!

  1. You can TOTALLY do it! Great job!

  2. I think it is completely possible but will be easier if you look at it annually instead of monthly. Your talking about $2400 a year, so some months you might spend more to stock up on stuff like meat or pantry basics, but other months you will spend less because you already have those things. That's how I try to look at it on roughly the same amount for 5 people and 1 frequent guest. My sister eats dinner here several nights a week, but she does contribute something to the meal so its all pretty even :)
