Week 19: Project Food Budget

Week 19 of Reluctant Vegetarian's Project: Food Budget

Goal: $75
Actual: $95.93

I know why I've been over: I haven't been planning meals as diligently as I used to. I fell out of the habit when I was busy with house renovations and never got back into it. I'm determined to do better next week.

This past week's budget went to lots of fruit and veggies as always plus these dishes:
The budget also went for ingredients for another dinner party this weekend where I'll be making
  • Black-Eyed Pea Dip
  • Cashew Vegetable Korma
  • Cookies & Cream Cupcakes
Also...a big oops. After I was excited that I was under last week, I found a receipt I hadn't added in for $48. That brings last week's total up to $107.39, so I was over budget last week too. Boo!

  1. You're so good and diligent at this; it's a real inspiration. I used to be a lot better (read: obsessive) about keeping track of money spent - though not exactly setting a budget. Week by week sounds much more manageable than my monthly plans.
