$100 a month

Alright, we are going to try it! $100 a month grocery budget! Starting THIS month! I have so much planted in the garden, we have so many fruit trees (although they won't really be ready until September), so many berry plants, we have all the beef we could ever need from our cow, plenty of eggs and now we have chicken as well... So we are going to limit ourselves to $100 a month for food for June, July, August and September... or until we die of starvation...which ever comes first! =)
I am actually really excited about it. It will force me to try/learn new things, it'll help clear out our cupboards of the items that we just never get around to eating since there is alway something "better" and it will help us each appreciate all of what we do have more. I also look forward to the added incentive to keep my garden going strong, learning how to preserve the food we get from it and making sure I use every scrap we have.
I went to the grocery store last night and got 3 lemons, a lime, a bundle of bananas, a bag of 7 large oranges and a gallon of milk.... $18.70!!! yikes! Well, here we go! =)
