By The Numbers – #2

07 Feb

January is over.  I’ve entered all expenses into my software program iBank.

We spent $850.06 on groceries and $510.57 on dining out.

That totals $1360.63.

I fed 5 people, 3 times a day (at least) for 31 days = 465 meals.

$1360.63 / 465 meals = $2.92 per meal


Not bad.

    $2.92/meal?? How is this possible?? Today I realized I need to recalibrate thinking about feeding a family of five. I hadn’t shopped since last Wed and as of 5 pm tonight we had no milk, butter, bread, eggs, fresh fruit or veg or anything to drink outside of water and four beers. Not good. On a positive note Suzanne did her first personal shopping of her lifetime when we went for groceries tonight – 2 kiwis and a pack of gum totaling $2.32, which she paid for from her own wallet.

      You may soon find that your single inside fridge is not enough storage! Maybe you’ll need a second one in the basement – to keep extra milk, juice, cheese, fruit/veg, etc.
      Love Suzanne’s first purchases! My kids love to buy the 96 cent gum at the counter.
