December Food Budget: 250$
December Food Expenditures: 340$...
That said, I've noticed a trend that I go grocery shopping twice a month, beginning and late middle of the month, spending about 75$ each time. For December, I pushed the late middle one all the way to December 29th and I won't need to go get a ton of groceries again until early mid-January. So I can probably take that last 120$ of groceries and split it 50/50 between January and December, putting my actual December food expenditure at 280$. I also restocked a bunch of staples.
At least, my restaurant expenses were way down this month compared to the last two months and I buy very little junk food.
Ah, whatever helps me sleep at night. :-)
