When I started this journey I wanted to lose weight on a budget. Chris and I were newly weds and we both didn't really know what a budget was. We learned quickly and I decided I was going to spend 80 to 90 dollars per week for the two of us. I knew healthy foods would cost more but I also knew they were how I was going to lose the weight.
a few things aren't pictured here. I spend $85 in groceries this week.
From then on I started meal planning each week which helped me stay with my budget. I make a list of the groceries I needed. It was so much easier this way.
Now that I'm eating more clean I typically spend a little more on groceries. I spend about 90 dollars per week. Which doesn't bother me. We don't eat out but maybe once a week and we usually eat everything before it goes bad.
Meal planning can be done with a budget if you stick to it.
Here's some of my tips to help stay on track with meal planning on a budget.
