I’m back on track this week coming in below my $125 budget thanks to making a very detailed grocery list for the week, and the fact that we have 40 pounds of ground beef in the freezer.

Please Note: You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand but you can save money just by using a meal plan. 🙂)
Do you think it is possible to have a $300 monthly food/toiletries budget for 2 adults?
Kimberlee Stokes says
Yes, I think that it’s doable Colette. You would have to make a strict meal plan and eat what’s on sale like in-season produce, but you can do it. You will also have to be very careful with what you spend on toiletries.
You could try the budget at that level and if it doesn’t work add $10 a week until you find what is doable for you.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. 🙂
