How much money do you spend on groceries each week? 🍏
It wasn't that long ago that our average cost for groceries per week, as a family of TWO were upwards of $250/week. Never a plan, never a list, and we were always stopping to pick up "one" thing on our way home from work.
That wasn’t accounting for 🍻 happy hour on the reg; $75 on average for drinks and apps/2x week OR 🍴dinners out. Chris and I used to go out, often times on a whim, 2-3x/week for dinner. For both of us, $80 each meal with a few drinks.
If you haven't been adding up with me, that's $640 to feed our family of 2 each WEEK.
...And because we ended up eating out on a whim half the time, I would throw tons of fresh produce away at the end of each week.
Our average weekly spend is now around $125 to feed our family of FOUR (well, one doesn't eat food yet, so technically three, lol!) Pretty massive shift, right?!
Well, most plant centered foods, like fresh fruits and veggies, beans and lentils, nuts, seeds and gluten free grains... they're generally kinder to the wallet than processed and convenience foods.
And those plant based proteins we incorporate? At around 50 cents/serving, they save you bookoo bucks!
Just a small few things shifted:
... head into each week with a solid PLAN instead of winging it!
...eat less prepared convenience foods!
…eat more PLANTS!
...cook more, using SHARED ingredients
...and for the first time ever, not throw a bunch of food away at the end of each week!
=A lower grocery bill 😍 This is exciting stuff! 🤩
What would you do with that extra money each week?!
