Mar 2017 Food Expense Report – $87.52

In order to keep track of my food expenses, I have started a monthly food expense report series. A few things to note:

— I currently do not live together with Mr. FAF and Baby FAF (only temporarily). My food expenses below are therefore counted as a single-person budget.

— Sometimes I buy food that will last for a couple of weeks or months (i.e. rice, salt, oil). But I will just count the purchase towards the month when I buy it.

— You might see great variation from week to week. The expenses might be really high for one week but extremely low for another. It’s because I don’t meal plan and just buy what I need. If it’s something I will eat at some point in the future (i.e. sesame rice balls, dumplings, sesame pancake), it’s usually frozen or packaged for a long shell life.

— Mr. FAF and I have gotten our grocery shopping to (almost) a science where we know exactly what we usually use for our cooking, so the food rarely goes to waste.

Eating out – Week 1: $7.41

I had Chinese food at the mall, that’s why the price was low. I just wanted to eat out for a change while window shopping but didn’t want to break the bank. 😉
