Recently, I posted about our success in keeping our food expenditures in Orlando under $50 per day. Bolstered by the success of that little project, we have embarked on a $20 a day food budget for the two of us.
When you think about it, $600 per month for food for two people should be very easy. And most days, we'll be well under the twenty bucks. But the idea is to accumulate the excess, so that when there's an occasion to go out, or we just feel like it, we can go for it. This way we will never feel bad about going out, but will also never allow food to overwhelm our budget.
We started it yesterday, March 1. So far, in a day and a half, we have spent about six bucks. I love it!
