April Food

April Food Cost

January Total: $39.48
February Total: $43.39
March Total: $35.51
April: $33.91
Year Total: $257.62
Total Remaining: $107.38


This month I had a few days when I didn't count the cost. If you don't like it, I don't really care because it's my project and I can do whatever I want with it :) For the first and second, I didn't count because I was still eating Easter leftovers and the last two days of the month were very stressful due to university tests.

I found a local source for butter this month, so I will no longer have to include it as a food cost. I like the taste of butter from the Farmers' Market more than the store-bought and it doesn't burn as easily.

If you look at my food list from last year, I was eating asparagus on the 1st of April which shows how wacky the weather was last year. This year my first day eating asparagus was on the 23rd.

The red is food I grew myself, orange is sourced locally and purple is for honey either from my hives or from someone I know.
