So I decided to do my food budget for the year for $1500. Hmmmmmm. I'm only 10 days into the year. I am already worried.
$1500 -- how does that break down? Well, if you do it by the day -- and there are 366 days this year -- that breaks down to about $4.10 a day. That makes it about .60 over for the year, but I think I can swing that.
10 days into the new year, and my new budget, and I have spent $40.65. Not too bad. I am only about .25 over. Of course, I have not made a huge spree yet, but give me time, I will get to it, I promise.
Got any hints on how to keep the budget down? Share them!
