Crunching Numbers – November

Novembers numbers are in. How did we do?

If you remember, I started keeping track in March. Previously my grocery bill used to be $225-$275 each week.

Well I knew I was doing well but I really had no idea just how much I had been saving these past 4 weeks. I am quite a happy person right now as I have finally been able to get my numbers under $50 per week. Although I think that we eat fairly healthy, my new goal is to buy more fish which can be expensive. I certainly don’t mind going over $50 each week in order to do that. It’s just nice to know I will be able to do it and stay under my $75 budget.

Here are my current numbers since I started keeping track in March:

Total spent out of pocket for the month: $567.83
Avg $128.24 per week
