We did 2 shopping trips during the entire month of March (except 2 quick $10 mini-trips to get fresh items like milk and fresh produce). It was really nice to just use the things in our stockpile- especially since money is really tight for us right now. We spent $264.50 OOP during the month of March. That averages $66/week and $8.84/day. Our home feeds me, my husband, my 6 month old baby, the guy that rents a room from us, a few times a week my father in law come over for dinner. I’m pretty happy with that daily average! And I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but we rarely eat out. I never do, unless may once every couple months my hubby and I will go out for an “expensive” $20-$30 dinner date. My husband packs a lunch to bring with him to work every day. We are always so surprised when we go out to eat anywhere and a meal costs $15 per person. We keep thinking about how that much money could feed our entire family for 2 full days!
