Week 10: Project Food Budget

Week 10 of Reluctant Vegetarian's Project: Food Budget

Goal: $75 (reduced from $100 starting this week)
Actual: $55.62

I'm on a roll! Budget was spent on
I continue to use the lessons I've learned from this project to keep my spending down. But I think the most significant change is baking my bread each week. It not only saves me $16.34, but it's fresh and delicious and healthy and ridiculously easy to make (with only five ingredients), as I point out here.

How did everyone else participating do this week?


  1. so awesome! i have the opposite problem. spending keeps going up. ;-)

  2. Wow! $20 under budget? That is awesome! Baking bread is a huge cost saver, and homemade bread tastes better than store bought, too. I haven't bought bread in at least a year. At ~$5/loaf, that's a lot of dough back in our pockets (ha). Congrats on a great week!
