Cheaper Food

I’ve been trying to find ways to lower my food bill. I spent over $600 on food in May. That is absolutely absurd. My budget is already high, $400 a month is what I had budgeted for food. Now I’m going to try to reduce my food budget to $300 a month or $75  week. $25 for eating out and $50 for groceries weekly. I can buy 14 microwave meals for $42 and buy my sparkling water and oatmeal and that’s $50.

I was going to try to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead of all that microwave food to save some money, so I gave it a try and unfortunately I overeat on those sandwiches. They are 300 calories each. Last night I ate 3 of them AFTER dinner. My calories yesterday was 3200. So no more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Can’t trust myself with them.

My mom took me to this inconspicuous store near campus and they have all kinds of Indian food for $3. All different kinds, it’s awesome. So I will be buying that every week for my microwave meals. They have paneer paratha, they have these sandwich wraps, all kinds of stuff, its so cool.

Anyway, so far this week I’ve spent less than $25 cause my mom bought me food last week which i’m still eating.
