January Food


January Food Cost

January Total: $39.48
Year Total: $144.81
Total Remaining: $220.19

My goal for this year is to spend as little as possible on food. As you can see from my totals, I don’t include gifts in the cost of food. This month I used a $20 gift card I received from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas, and I have another $25 restaurant card that I will use sometime this year. I was given soup from a couple of people. The Mexican chicken soup was a thank-you gift from my neighbor for giving him a ride home from the hospital. It was some of the best soup I’ve ever eaten.  

Work Food: $0.87
Restaurants: $15.90
Stores: $22.71

The best purchase I made was 10lbs of potatoes for only $0.20/lb.

I marked the foods that I’ve grown and stored in red and the local foods in orange. I did have a day where I only ate pizza, root beer, 6 swiss rolls and lemonade…. Oh well.
