Week 9: Project Food Budget

Week 9 of Reluctant Vegetarian's Project: Food Budget

Goal: $100
Actual: $77.06

After two months of participating in this project, I see the light. This week I used all the lessons I've been learning and am under budget as a result. I think it's time to reduce my weekly budget!

This week's budget went to staples, many fruits and veggies in addition to meals (about half the budget), and these meals. As always, I baked my own bread, cooked my own beans, and used veg broth I made earlier and froze, so that contributed to the savings.
How did everyone else do this week?


  1. way to go on the budgeting!! you're a money saving machine. :)

  2. I want to see your grocery list so I can try and guess what recipes she's working up for the new book. LOL.

    Excellent job coming in under budget!
