But I started thinking about it, and I don't even know what a reasonable amount of money per month is to spend on groceries. BF and I were spending $300+ each month, which always seemed really high to me, but maybe that's just typical for two people?
Thankfully, I found this awesome chart from the USDA that breaks down what a person or family should roughly be spending on food.
That's obviously a little small, but click the link to see the full chart. Man, I just love charts. This is the part I'm most concerned with though:
I'm lucky in that I don't like meat and therefore don't eat it, I like lentils and most of the food that I actually want to eat is pretty cheap. Hopefully I don't develop a taste for truffles in the coming months (yummy truffles), and I'm also planning on buying less food overall, and hopefully wasting less too.
Wish me luck!
