April: Bad Budgetting Month for Food

*gulp* I checked my MoneyClip 2.0 for my budget so far for the month of April on food. 95% has been spent on restaurants since April 1 :( and only mere 5% on groceries.

What is happening to me??

In the several previous months, I have successfully suppressed the restaurants by 65% (65% groceries, 35% restaurants, with $200 limit monthly). And now April, out of blue, restaurant spending is 95%.

I suspect it is because of spring in the air. Being out all the time, eating out. And not in mood to shop for food. I am also having my tiles installed on Tuesday, and my refrigerator will be disconnected (I think) for 2 days, so I am trying to get my refrigerator as empty as possible. Is that an excuse for myself? Maybe.

And, if you are interested - Wild Oats is having 25% off organic produce sale, ending April 23. That's going to be the same price as regular food that non-organic people buy at food stores such as Hen House, Dillards, or Price Chopper, but more healthy!

Shop away ...

Try making simple sandwiches while the fridge is out, get some buns or bread, a head of lettuce, cheese and some sauce (ie. mustard) that does not need to be refridgated and you will have grocery food that does not need to be in the refridgeator.

That's the simplest food FrecklesFly and I ate while I was in Europe and never needed a fridge. :)

That's true. :) That means I can shop at Wild Oats to take advantage of their 25% off organic produces!
