What we’re eating this week:

Menu Plan

Notes: M is back to work after a two-week break. We have house guests Thursday to Sunday. Monday to Thursday lunches are just mine.

I went grocery shopping this morning but I’ll probably need to do a top-up shop on Thursday. Grocery spending for November (so far)  is £183.26….a little over my budget of £180. ;)

My goal this month: Spend less than £180 on groceries but still increase our stockpile (toothpaste, beans, rice etc)

We’re away for ten days of the month (I’m not including the grocery purchased in NY in this total), and so this budget is generous. However, I’ve been over spending in this category so much, that I feel baby steps are the way to go right now. :)

Let’s begin with my first grocery haul of the month. I spent £54.14 and here’s where the money went.

Grocery

– £6.00 Coffee x 200g
– £1.00 Soup x 2
– £0.70 Tomatoes with garlic
– £1.60 Salsa
– £1.10 Tortilla Chips
– £1.50 Mayo
– £1.00 Baking Potatoes x 4
– £0.46 Bananas (£0.68kg)
– £1.00 Bread
– £1.00 Lettuce
– £2.23 Grapes (£3.95kg)
– £5.00 Butter x 2
– £3.75 Personal items

I also stocked up on meat for the freezer:

grocery 2

– £10.00 Chicken Fillets x 3 (10 Breasts)
– £5.00 Pork Loin x 2 (4 Loins)
– £5.00 Bacon x 2
– £1.10 Milk
– £1.20 Natural Yogurt
– £2.50 Fruit Yogurt
– £1.00 Sour Cream
– £2.00 Grated Mozzarella

A quick evening menu plan:

Monday: Chicken Taco Bowls
Tuesday: Burritos with leftovers ^
Wednesday: BBQ Pork Loin with Baked Potato & Broccoli
Thursday: Chicken Curry (freezer) with Rice & Naan
Friday: Club Sandwiches

Extra goals this month:
1. Update my one page (A4) price book using the shops in my new area (I’ve streamlined the products we buy)
2. Finish planning our 4 week revolving menu plan (it’s nearly there!)

November Grocery Spending/Budget: £54.14/£180
