The hubs and I took a fall break trip last weekend and hatched a plan that we embarked upon today. We are keeping our food budget to $270 for the next 30 days. That includes food we buy at the store and food we already have at home. The $270 figure is what we've read is the national average for SNAP (food stamp) recipients. ($4.50 per day per person)
We feel like keeping our food budget so low will automatically limit what and how much we eat. We won't be unhappy if we lose a few pounds during the process. We are documenting this adventure on another blog. Feel free to follow us there. I will continue to update here as well, but not in the detail that we plan to on the other blog.
I'm excited to see where this path leads us!
