holy groceries!

November 24th, 2009 at 03:26 am

Our grocery expenditure is sky high, and I have no idea why or how. While we are not eating out once a week like we used to, it still doesn't explain why we are spending so much!

I have one more week to go this month and we have already overspent our 'budgetted' amount per week!

And the funny thing is, we are not really eating adventurous or exciting new dishes that cost a lot in ingredients (it's impossible, we still don't have a stove or oven - I mean lets face it, how do you make an adventurous, exciting and expensive dish in a slow cooker or barbecue? unless you're cooking lobster, it's not going to happen). Last night we had mexican beans (made from scratch) with rice and salad. The night before we had the same. The night before that we had salad and DF cooked tofu and rissoles on the barbecue with chopped sweet potato.

It's just weird because I can't explain it. Our farmers market expenditure has only gone up $10 since the start of the year - from $30-$40 to $40-$50, and that is where we get the bulk of our food from. The supermarket we only get things like dairy, rice, pasta, cleaning stuff etc. We don't even pay for bread! I get it for free!

I just don't get it!

    Have you been checking your bills? I've frequently been overcharged in error at the grocery store. Once I was charged $99.00 for a roast rather than $9.90. It's worth reviewing the receipt.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you. There is no shortage of adventure when it comes to barbeque. Nothing like throwing dead animal on the grill. "If you're slower then me and you taste good, then tough." - Anthony Bourdain
