$60.00 A Week Challenge: November 2, 2015 Weekly Food Cost

November 03, 2015

eating for $60.00 a week - November 2, 2015 Weekly Food Cost

Somehow Monday is here again!  As the Holidays get closer it seems the time goes faster and faster.  This week we didn't need to buy much for our meal plan.  Once again we did most of our shopping from our freezer, pantry, and the remnants of the garden.  We also didn't stock up on much, mostly because what was on sale we have plenty of.  Except pot roast - we bought 2 small angus pot roast at $2.99 per pound.  We also bought block cheese at the commissary although we didn't need it and kielbasa was on sale at Hannaford.  I'll cut it and freeze it for future pork & bean stew, one of our favorite cold weather meals.

Here's what we spent this week:

Commissary: $28.38
**please note, according to the people I've spoken to at the military commissary, I am not allowed to share their product pricing so I can only share the total and tell you what was included in that total.**
  • mushrooms, granulated sugar, coffee, tortilla shells, soda, butter, cheese - cheddar & Colby jack, juice

Hannaford: $5.72
  • bananas - $2.43
  • kielbasa - $3.29

Price Chopper:  $19.26
  • 2 Angus Pot Roast @ $2.99/pound


Farmer's Market:  $6.00
  • Milk & Cream - $6.00


Grand Total = $59.36

For last week's budget, we went out to dinner Friday night but used a gift card.  Dinner out is so much nicer when you don't have to pay cash for it!!

This week we'll be processing 31 chickens for meat which will cost us $155.00 {includes cutting and packaging}.  This will be factored into our monthly budget which will put us over budget for the month, but should level out for the year.

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018



1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 13, 2018


If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year.

I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...

February 11, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
