    The Monthly Food Budget

    We have 15 days left in the month! Will we stay within our budget? Currently, our monthly food budget is ~$800 for (4) people; Jay doesn’t live with us as he’s 20 years old. This includes grocery shopping, the occasional eating out, vitamins/supplements (basically anything we ingest goes in this budget category, except for beer and my work lunch money; we have separate budget category just for Jesse’s beer, it’s a very touchy/controversial subject in the DFC space along with how much our food budget is). Truthfully, there have been months this year where we’ve spent almost double this budget in a month. Yeah, going over budget happens a lot…
