I really want to know how much money people allocate each month for food, and then what they spend that money on. I’m so curious about meal planning and daily eating habits of others. Maybe it’s a sort of guage of normalcy, but it’s also a guage to see simply where we are.

We used to budget $400 per month for food. For some time, we were eating $3 per person per day. Now, we spend and by default budget $6000 per month for food. I’m not sure we’re eating any better nutrition wise than before. And, I’m hard pressed to remember what I made for meals then. Have we increased our food waste? What happened?

Anyway. It’d be great if other people would chime in in the conversation. I need ideas! And, I want yours!

Either way, right now, there is no move for us.
