kirkor Posted November 7, 2015 Share Posted November 7, 2015 Inspired by Munkers's* thread (Whole 30: Budget Edition), I'm choosing for this current iteration of W30 to track all the dollars I spend on food. Mine will be unique in several ways: I'll be staying in 3 different states Several road trips will be included: 2,200 miles, 1,300 miles, 700 miles (round trips) One cross-country airline trip My birthday is happening Thanksgiving is happening I eat ketogenically I am okay with eating very simple foods. I definitely enjoy high end fancy food, but I also am fine with relatively plain and repetitive food. Earlier this year I did a W30 using only 10 food items, to give you an idea. I'm pretty frugal with my money, so I try to buy in bulk, on sale, marked-down meat, etc. I'm single (I don't think this is related to the previous 3 points....) ...if my specific circumstances don't seem relevant to your situation, think of this as a way to show how W30 can really be adapted to any scenario. I tend to shop at various times throughout the week. I don't really have a weekly shopping trip. I also haven't yet delved in to batch cooking (check out https://www.reddit.com/r/MealPrepSunday/),but I use a crock pot a lot and try to have leftovers available. For this reason, I'll be doing a breakdown of the cost of each food item, summed up for the day and the week, as opposed to Munkers who had her tally of the week's grocery bill. I'll still have the weekly tally, but it will be based on the quantities of food at each given meal. If anyone has any suggestions of what they'd like to see during this month, please let me know. *Did you know that the possessive form for proper names ending in an "s" is a bit controversial? http://www.dailywritingtips.com/possessive-of-proper-names-ending-in-s/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
