I'm trying a new Healthy Living on a Budget in February to get a better idea of how much I spend on groceries and to see if I can live on a lean budget of $100/ week for 2 people. I'm not sure if that's going to happen since I will also eat healthy too. This means cooking more meals at home, bringing brown bag lunches to work and eating a healthy breakfast before work. All of this within a budget! This will be a challenge for me.
Today I went grocery shopping and it shocked me how much I spent on the first day of my new goal.
Grand total at IGA: $71.95
Good thing: Go shopping with a list (only if you stick to the list)
Bad thing: Go shopping when you're hungry
I'm more of a spontaneous grocery shopper so I buy based on my tummy and tonight my tummy was hungry.
Already turkey stock is on the stove with the turkey back bones and drumsticks ($4.38), onions, carrots, and celery. More recipes to follow in the upcoming days.
BUT my BIG question is.....will it last a week???
