Grocery Budget: The Numbers Are In

Finally getting around to checking up on my grocery budget.   I keep track every 4 weeks and this 4 week period went form 12/19 – 1/14.  If you remember, I started keeping track in March. Previously my grocery bill used to be $225-$275 each week.

I am higher this past month then I have been in a while.  I had 5 adults living and eating in the house for a month (home from school) and some guests so actually, when you think of it, it really wasn’t that bad.  I stayed below my $75 budget which is all I can ask for.  Here are my current numbers since I started keeping track in March:
