Project Food Budget: Week 18



I wish I could proclaim that Spring stuck around after the gorgeous weather we had last week, but alas, it did not. We’re back to 50 degree temps and soggy – which is actually kind of unusual for this time of year, even in Seattle. We really can’t complain, though, especially in light of the weather events occurring in the Midwest lately.

Even though it’s not really Spring around here, my produce box had some welcomed variety in it for the first time this year – a cantaloupe, some corn, and a big bag of tomatoes, amongst the usual winter-ish staples.

Goal: $75
Actual: $60.91

I really didn’t buy much again this week because we have a pretty full pantry of staples, and I’m trying to use up what we have on hand. Here’s where it  all went:
