Well let me tell you the rest of the story!....
In working at trying to keep my average of $1 per person per meal going strong, I decided to take a break for any "heavy" grocery shopping this week!
My freezer and pantry are full of various meats, potatoes, rice, baking supplies, and snacks. So I used what I had on hand and just got a few of the necessities.
So I made up my menus for this week and found that I only needed to get milk, juice(apple juice and koolaid), eggs and garlic bread. So all total I spent $21.36 for this week's of groceries! I would have spent a $1 less if I had remember to grab the Meijer Mealbox coupon for the garlic bread!
So instead of giving you a breakdown of what I purchased this week, I am going to give you the breakdown as to where I am so far for the year.
So far for 73 days of groceries, I have spent $1427.02 out of pocket.Which averages out to $19.55 per day.Which means that for 3 meals per day it costs me $6.52 per meal to feed my family of 7.Which means that it averages out to 93¢ per person per meal!
