The 300

My goal for the next 3 months is to stay below $300 a month for food for the family.  That includes our eating out money, but I have a separate budge for the milk.  I guess I could put eating out in a different category and then include the milk, but I did it this way since I always set money aside for meeting my farmer.

The $300 is for a family of 3 two of who can not eat gluten.  That's $3.57 a day per person for food for Feb.   There is not way to afford much junk food on that.  OR we can eat only junk food. I'll go with the first one.

I'm estimating that 160 of it or so will be spent on fresh fruit and veggies at the market.  That number goes up and down, but $40 a week is a good guess.

It will take some planning, but the savings will be worth it.
