Project: Food Budget–Week 22
“Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be.”
That is my motto this week, and it’s a good thing, because it has been a rollercoaster ride from the get-go!
When I went shopping for the week, I had no idea we would be travelling from Bend to Seattle almost a full week earlier than expected. We had planned to make the trip this coming weekend. Alas, 2Chili had a last minute meeting pop up on Wednesday, and needed to be in town next week as well. Since I have a half marathon scheduled for March 10 in Seattle, it made the most sense to pack up the gang and all drive up together on Tuesday. Luckily I was able to bring most of the groceries and freeze whatever wouldn’t travel well.
Some additional unexpected news on Monday sent us into a severe tailspin, and my meal planning and preparations pretty much went out the window. Everyone and everything is okay, but sometimes life gets in the way, and that is okay. The important thing is to do the best you can with the situation you have, and know that, as my mother is – and mothers everywhere are – known for saying, ‘it will all work out in the end.” Don’tcha just sometimes you could speed up the getting to the end part?!
Total for the week: $54.13
Total for the month: $277.88
Budget for the month: $325
Under budget! But, I’m not shooting off fireworks on this one. We have eaten out way too much in the past week or so, so our “entertainment” budget is really taking the hit for the food budget being under!
