I haven’t grocery shopped for myself, let alone for two people, since 2000, when I had an apartment for a year. Except for that year, I’ve either lived with my family, been on-campus, at camp, living with a host-family or traveling. So when I go to Kroger’s, I walk out having spent WAY too much – and we’re finding that we can get some really great healthy stuff at the Farmer’s Market but we sometimes don’t around to eating it all.
So. For any of you veteran grocery shoppers out there – what tips could you give some newlyweds about how to budget-shop at grocery stores?
[Everyone has been leaving very helpful suggestions – keep ’em coming, thanks! One additional question, for those of you who are married and with no kids, another question. Obviously everyone will be a little different depending on where you are in life, etc., but I’m wondering what you all budget for groceries per month?]
