Where did all my money go? Oh food I loathe you.


That image just told you how much I spent in the past two months on food alone. $851 on food. It sucks working in a grocery store and getting a discount. I look in my cabinets at home and they are pretty stocked but I just don't make any food. I spend 13 hours a day doing work related things (bus, walking, 9 hours of work, etc.) and I come home and I'm just exhasted and I end up falling asleep on my couch and then wake up two hours later and then hop into bed and go to sleep until I have to get up for work the next day.

I have to be strategic about what I make to eat, especially when I take it to work because I have a 2 hour ride to work and I can't have anything spoil. I've found a lot of different things that wouldn't spoil. Rice, canned goods, and the like most likely wouldn't spoil by the time I get to work, but I am just lazy. It needs to stop because it is quite literally eating away at my budget and my money.

Since I am in such a rot when it comes to food I am going cut my food budget by $50 so I can get back on track. I am 2 months behind on my budget for food, so I am cutting my budget to $150 a month to get back on track. It'll take me 9 months to get back on where I am supposed to be. In March I am going to try to eat my way through my cabinets. I look at them and they are pretty stacked. I think that I could go into April without spending any money on food and, still not completely eat my way through all the food in my cabinets. Cross your fingers boys and girls.
