This may be a completely stupid question, but please bear with me. I have been seperated for about 6 months now and have been living with relatives since. So, I have not had to bear the sole grocery bill burden for my son and I. So I am trying to work up a budget for us to see what I am going to be able to afford as far as renting a house. My son is 3 and I am 30, and we have 2 large dogs who will be eating probably one 30lb bag of dog food a month (approx $30).
I am thinking $200 a month for groceries ... Is that being far too modest? I can recall when my ex and I were together spending about $400 a month on groceries, but, then he had no sense of being frugal whatsoever, where I most certainly do.
Thoughts and opinions are definitely appreciated!!
