Food Spending is High this Week!

October 14th, 2015 at 02:38 am

Our food spending is so high this week, it's making me crazy. (And after watching several episodes of Eat Well for Less - shame on me!).

Not sure why, but I will try to figure it out...

- impulse buy candy corn ($2.50) - but it's almost Halloween, and my birthday is on Halloween, and I love candy corn; surely one bag a year won't break the bank?

- stocked up on my bread when I found it at Natural Grocer for $1 less than usual

- coach coming to stay with us

- had leftover mozzarella and thought I'd better use it, so I made a giant lasagna. But the ingredients aren't that expensive - and I already had the mozzarella. This is not one of our usual meals, but the coach is here, and it's a nice treat!

- I accidentally categorized something as groceries when it wasn't groceries; that's an easy way to lower the amount in a category!

    I was $5 over for the week at the grocery store, so I will have to cut $5 from next week's trip. I could have opted for the bottle of maple syrup instead of the jug to come in a tad under budget, but that wouldn't have made sense in the long-term (would have resulted in a higher per-ounce cost) so I went ahead and bought the jug.

    i think we can safely conclude that the $2.50/once-a-year bag of candy corn will not break the budget. enjoy and happy early bday!! Smile

    I too love candy corn and only buy it at Halloween time. Smile I think that was a fair indulgence.
