Project: Food Budget – Week 16



As I write this post I’m looking out my window at a true winter wonderland. I just love snow, until I have to shovel a foot off it off the driveway, which I did this morning! On a positive note, if you pay attention and swap sides often, shoveling snow is a great ab workout! It has been snowing heavily for a couple days in Bend, so much so that I had to get out the snowshoes and stomp down the backyard for our dog because she was face-high in snow! (She is about 45 lbs, so not a “small” dog).image Sadly the snow is giving way to rain, creating a mushy mess, but, it  was fun while it lasted!

We had a pretty easy food budget week after last week’s big stock up. All of the produce is organic except the butternut squash and cauliflower, something I am always happy about. I like to show that you can eat well on a moderate budget and still have a wide variety of mostly seasonal fruits and veggies.

With two weeks left in the month, I might be cutting it close for January – we’ll see!

This week’s total: $75.16
