Breakfast & lunch were typical- everyone did their own thing for breakfast, our youngest daughter had her usual PB&J sandwich for lunch, and the hubby and I had leftovers.
This day was my day to be in charge of dinner. I had purchased some sausages (hot dog type) in a previous grocery trip, and our buns we got from Costco a few weeks back REALLY needed to be used before they went off. I didn’t get a picture of our gourmet hotdog meal, because lets face it, there’s not much special about hot dogs. We grilled them up and ate a nice cheap meal. (with a few hot dog/sausages left for easy lunches) We ended up grilling 15 of the 20 we had bought. When we bought them they were $4.59 per package.
- 15 hot dog sausages- $6.89
- 15 buns- $3.00
Total cost for this day: $9.89
Running Total Budget for the 30 days used:
Groceries purchased: $456.45
Groceries used in meals: $158.37
Date Night: $74.33
Our budget for these 3 for the 30 days is: Groceries- $600, Date Nights- $100 & Pizza- $100 Since we may not use all the groceries purchased in this time, and will be using some things we have on hand already, we will be tracking both the running total of the best estimated cost of meals each day as well as the cost of groceries/date nights/pizza purchased during the 30 days.
