January Grocery Budget

I did it!! I've had a goal to try to keep our grocery budget under $150 a month. So far, I've kept it up for two months! :) I just added up all my grocery receipts and our grand total was: $147.70, which includes our milk delivery service. I think my "using what we have" goal for two weeks really helped keep our shopping expenses lower. We'll see how February goes, I'm hoping I'll be able to keep this up. Although, I have been noticing a lot of prices have been going up on the things we buy regularly, which could make this more challenging.

By the way, we are NOT eating a full diet of Ramen Noodles and Spaghetti-os either! ;)


  1. Wow. That is what I spend on groceries and home good supplies about every ten days on a trip to Walmart!

  2. That's great! Congrats on sticking with your goal!

  3. I know! I didn't think I'd ever be able to keep our budget that low when we first started this process, but it's working! :) By the way, Jessie, it's ONLY food. I don't include toiletries/household items in this total because that comes out off a different budget for us.
