  1. great post!
    1. Yes! I do this every two weeks and it helps tremendously. I use PlanToEat and it works great.
    2. I need to do this. I know it would help out so much but the task of pricing everything (I do get a lot of repeat things) seems daunting.
    3. We are on the envelope system as well and our monthly grocery budget is around $480 (no grass-fed meat for us yet). We have a $40 “Leftovers” envelope for misc. things like going out.
    4.Yep, this has helped me so much too. I’m a visual person as well.
    5. Yeah, my head is always calculating- “okay the dog doesn’t need dog food this time so I can get these organic strawberries, yesss!”

    1. Stephanie, it sounds like you are in great shape with budgeting! I can’t wait until it becomes second nature, but that still feels a long way off.

  2. So glad I am not the only one! We have struggled to keep our food budget around $800 a month and I never tell anyone that amount as they look at me like I am crazy. Both of my children have food allergies and sensitivity to pesticides so I make the loop of stores each week: organic meat at Costco, use my member card at Plum, trader Joe’s..whole paycheck I mean whole foods. We have beef and pork shares, but chicken is still a challenge.

    1. I absolutely know what you mean! It is priority #1 in my family to allot a large portion of our budget to good food, so I am grateful for a budget that allows us to spend that and happy to sacrifice in many other areas to spend so much there.
