I have decided on a $60 weekly grocery shopping budget. This will include all household items cleaning supplies, toiletries, make-up, etc. I have been spending about $60 per week lately, so I don't think it should be too hard to stick to it. If we can stick to this, our annual grocery bill should be about $3100.
In addition, I would like to limit our restaurant visits to once per month and try to keep the bill to about $20. I am going to try to limit fast-food (we are addicted to pizza) as well, but will try to keep it under $15 per month, which would be about $7-8 twice a month.
This will help limit my crazy spending sprees and buy the items we NEED the most.
