i just stumbled across this blog.
looking through your weekly/weekend updates it seems like you buy NO GROCERIES… or like $20/week. How?
Thanks for stopping by! Perhaps this would be better outlined more in a blog post, but essentially I average about $140 per month on groceries. I usually go to Trader Joe’s and pick up frozen things for dinners twice a month at about $50 each trip. Because they’re frozen, I don’t have to worry about eating them all right away (I hate wasted food).
I usually go to the grocery store or farmer’s market once a week to pick up things for lunches and side-dishes for dinners. For sides: I usually stick with rice, veggies, or a bag of lettuce. For lunches: I always eat my lunch at work and that includes sandwiches (PB&J), hummus & crackers, carrots, yogurt, and fruit that I keep at my desk. Breakfast is almost always oatmeal, yogurt or smoothies.
I also only buy things for myself (no family/significant other), and usually go out to eat with friends rather than entertaining at my apartment.
Hope that helps! :)
I’m a runner myself and love when I hear about other runners!
