September Food Spending- Take 2

My food budget for September is $490 (my budget for September actually runs from August 23 to September 22 to coincide with my husband’s once monthly pay). I’m dividing that budget between our cow share ($54), beef CSA ($50), Azure Standard ($135.23), Dining out ($50) and Grocery Store ($200.77). In my last spending report I [...]

September Food Spending- Take 1

My budget for the month of September is $490 divided between Cow share ($54), Beef CSA ($50), Azure Standard ($135.23), Dining Out ($50) and Grocery Store ($200.77). I say the budget is for the month of September but it actually coincides with my husband’s once monthly pay day so starts on August 23 and ends [...]

August Budget Wrap-Up and September Budget Plan

If you’ve been following along, my food budget for August was $550 (our budget coincides with my husband’s once a month pay day and runs from the 23rd to the 22nd of each month). That budget plan went kaboom. My last post I was over by $17.74 but we spent a little more after that [...]

August Food Spending

For the month of August (my ‘month’ actually goes from July 23 to August 22 to coincide with my husband’s once a month pay schedule) my grocery budget is $550.00.

So far we had spent $323.51 of our allotted $550 for this month. Since then here is what we have added:

Beef CSA- $50 (This [...]

Food Spending Plan and Budget for August

It is looking like another unorganized month for my Budget. I’m adjusting to having two more people in the house since my oldest daughter and her SO are here. Plus I have not been doing my job of meal planning like I know I should and I do notice that reflected in our spending. Our [...]

June Food Spending Part 3- Finished

I have wrapped up my spending for June. It is only June 24 but my husbands pay period runs from the 23 of each month until the 22 of the next month so I go off of that. For the month I had $505. I divided that up between Azure Standard, Beef CSA, Cow share, [...]

June Food Spending Part 2

I’ve been keeping track of our food spending for the month. Our month actually runs from May 23 to June 22 to coincide with my husband’s payday. I started the month with $505 and a fairly well stocked freezer and an okay pantry.

I planned to spend the $505 in this way;

Cow Share: $54 [...]

I’ve done the bulk of my grocery shopping for the month and wanted to share it with you. Our food budget for the month is $505 and our month runs from May 23 to June 22 to coincide with my husband’s once a month pay. I’m starting the month with a fairly decent freezer stock [...]

>February Food-Take 2

>Well… this week ended up being a big spending week and a not very real food eating week. Wednesday was the first hurdle. Angel and I went and ran some errands (including picking up my beef CSA order) and ended up going out for lunch. We went to a new chain restaurant which has only [...]

January Food- Final Take

In the month of January we tried to eat out of our freezer and pantry. Grocery shopping was usually picking up fresh produce, milk and other staples that we ran out of and I decided we couldn’t live without. In January, we did not get our beef CSA that we usually get (10 pounds of [...]

January Food- Take 4

This was a big spending week. We had planned a dinner out at the new Olive Garden with some people from church for next weekend but other peoples plans changed so we went this past weekend. We had a wonderful time but that one dinner was a big portion of our spending this month. To [...]

Hi and Welcome! I'm so happy that you have found your way here. I hope that you will find useful information in your real food journey. Our real food journey has changed over the years to include a small two acre farm with a larger 20 acre farm in our future. I'm excited to share our busy, and sometimes crazy, adventures as we learn new things. We're also working hard to be completely debt free so you'll find information on finances and general frugality along with various family adventures plus the occasional 'odd' category depending on what's going on in our world. Thanks for joining along! ~ Millie
