I have no idea how in the world I always spend $200. It doesn't matter if there are 15 or 50 things on my list or if I am cooking for 3 or 6 people - I still spend $200! So frustrating. The most frustrating part is that my budget is only $150, so I continually go over budget. Every month.
So, I call my loving husband to
As I was discussing the situation with my friend, I realized something that made us laugh. $150 has been my grocery budget for the past 6 years! Before the thought of 4 kids entered our minds. Before the price of milk was $4.00 a gallon. Before we started medical school. Before I was trying to eat healthier. Did I mention before we had 4 more mouths to feed?!? And then as I began to go through the budget in my head I laughed when I realized that all the categories in our budget are the same as they were 6 years ago.
LOTS has changed in 6 years, maybe our budget should too!
