Yesterday we went grocery shopping. How much, on average, do you spend grocery shopping?
We spend about $500-600 a month! Do you think that's a lot?
We eat well; hence the 10 lbs of added girth to my waist size. We don't go out much, at least not like I used to in a prior life where I would probably spend about $500 just in dining out. We spend probably about another $100 a month in dining out: We go to our favorite pub(s) a couple times a month.
While our grocery budget may seem high, keep in mind that we don't buy food at work. We take breakfast and lunches in everyday. I used to easily spend $8-10 a day now we buy cold cuts every week and make sandwiches. I bring yogurt and a cereal bar or cottage cheese and fruit for breakfast. Buying food on the run can can quickly blow your budget and add upwards of $200 a month a person to your food expenses. Ouch!
Food is just so expensive and to eat healthy costs money!
God, after rereading this post it sounds like a public service announcement. How dull. Well if you got this far into the post then congratulations on being thoroughly bored.
On a side note, watched Julie and Julia last night. Fell asleep half way through. Meryl Strep did a fantastic job at being Julia but I found the other girl boring.
