July Food List

July Food Totals

January Total: $39.48
February Total: $43.39
March Total: $35.51
April: $33.91
May: $39.11
June: $28.59
July: $22.39
Year Total: $347.71
Total Remaining: $17.29

This month my total expenditure for food was less than any other month. There are several reasons for the low amount. I worked more than usual this month which saves a lot of money on food because I can eat at work. Most of my calories consumed this month actually came from the restaurant. I also ate a lot of meals with family and several members of my extended family visited this summer, so I didn’t count that in my amount because normally I would not eat those foods. On the 8th I ate several restaurants in Asheville that specialize in serving local organic food. I went out to eat with a friend on the 30th which I count as an entertainment expense because I haven’t seen her in a long time.

I have made it through 212 days of the year averaging $1.64/day for food. I am right on track for my secondary goal of spending less than $600 this year for food. I hope next year I will be able to achieve my goal of less than $1/day for food. I still have much of my food remaining from past months. For example, I have over half of my rice remaining and gravy mixes.

Working in a restaurant is a great way to save money on food. I like where I work because the food is such high quality. I no longer make as much bread because I eat so much of it at work. I have even calculated the commute and it costs $0.78 in gas each day with gas prices at $3.56/gallon.
