    I'm getting back into this...budget is $800/mo. for food and HBAs. Yesterday I bought 2 steaks from the butcher for BBQ supper last night and they came out to 27 bucks. I think we are spent 1200 this month on food with includes eating out 8 times. Back to menu planning!

    I'm going to go for $500 a month beginning January 1. Right now I'm sending a lot of food out to people who need me to cook so I'm still running about $600 a month.

    Once I retire, I'd like to see it at about $400 a month, for food only.

    Well my average jumped again due to the auction, BB's and a large couponing trip last week. I'm trying to challenge myself to eat of my stockpiled food for November and possibly December in order to use that money for the holidays. I am going to have a really hard time with it though. I stopped for milk and lunchmeat today and barely resisted picking up eggnog even though I have zero space in my refrigerator for it.

    went wayyyy over again last month but I'm still sticking to my $217 budget, I'm stubborn like that LOL Came across some really great sales and stayed with dd for about a week so bought food there. I will probably adjust my budget after the first of the year though.
