how much do you spend on feeding your family? Do you set a budget based on each meal, each week, each month??? or do you just prepare meals based on what sounds good or looks good when you go shopping???
Recently I have been seeing ads about feeding a family of 4 dinner for $15 or dinner for $4/person and while at the initial thought 15 for dinner for 4 people dosnt sound like much wow that would add up fast.
our current budget is $1/ person/meal granted if I do oatmeal in the morning it isnt any where near the $1/person so that helps with the budget and our deal with the kids is if we can do the $1/person we can eat out 1-2 times a month.
so for our family of 7 we are looking at a food budget of 630/month this only included the food not the other grocery products .
and on the $1 we have been eating well. last night was ham, bread, broccoli, mac and cheese and salad and milk to drink
so whats your budget?
