Your food budget

Aabacus | Sep 2, 201107:17 AM

I've always tried to balance healthy eating with fiscally responsible eating whcih can be a challenge when my favorite cookie is on sale 2 for 1. *sigh*

I've been on a budget for the last year or so and have found that this is what works for me. I'm curious if I'm above or below other folks.

Stats: I'm a single guy (40's) in Atlanta, GA. About 40lbs over my ideal weight.

$200 for Groceries for the month ($6-$7 per day)
$150 for Restaurants (that includes having someone go with me so it may only be one or two meals)
$30 Fast food (one or two meals)

What's the verdict? How does your budget work out (try to be honest!)

Note: I just joined CH the other day so play nice with the newbie please!
