Project: Food Budget

Starting next week I will be participating in the Project: Food Budget challenge.  With the baby on the way we have been very careful with our finances.  I am really trying to figure out what works for us and find that perfect balance between cooking at home, eating out, and buying ready-to-go snacks.

The first and foremost challenge has been figuring out the actual budget.  I will give myself a month to record all our food spending and possibly adjust it in the future.  I am starting off with $100 a week.  I know it's a bit generous for a two persons household but with the crazy ministry schedules we live it would be almost impossible to avoid splurging on eating out or ordering food here and there.  So for now - let's try $100 a week, shall we?

These posts will also be a place where I'll record some of my favorite menu items from the week and I am hoping to be able to link up some recipes too once in a while.

Shall we chat in the comment section?  What about you?  Do you have a set food budget?  And do you have a hard time sticking to it?

Hi there. We do have a food budget and meal planning is key. I think I need to revamp the food budget b/c of all the prices increasing at our local stores.
