One of the things I say fairly often is "What does THAT have to do with the price of rice". Lately I seemed to be taking that pretty literal as I am trying to figure out some more Budget Friendly Vegan Solutions for Meal Time. I've done many of these mini blog posts throughout the years and I have seen a lot of veggie buddies doing VLOGS about $30 or $25 a week on a Budget when it comes to food shopping. I would like to do more of that ASAP!
I was reading several articles about food prices lately. The most recent was an article from May 2017 that said 2 person adult house hold with no kids spends anywhere between $400-$800 each month on food/groceries. In a similar article on debt solutions it said to take the $400-$800 figure and try and only spend $125 on food each month per person. So that's $250. Which is only $150 less that the low end of each of those articles. However, if you are able to save $150 per month right there that money could be used for something else, I suppose. I guess it's the little steps, eh?
At this point in my post I should confess and say this entire post will just be one big BLAB. I would like to see if I can challenge myself to do that but I'm horrible at planning because of everything else going on. I think I will start with the weekly challenge. This blog will be a nice way to keep me accountable.
Since it's already TUESDAY and our weekends are impossible to plan I can tell you that I already spent $7.50 on a HUGE salad yesterday. That leaves me with $17.50. Time will tell if I am able to start this week or next. But I guess the first step is the thought - yeah - it's the thought that counts - right? (insert frustrated laugh here)
(clears throat...nice segue, eh!?) I have been easily frustrated lately. I need to jump back into meditation again. Today I did some thinking - does that count?
Long story short - be on the lookout for more 'off the wall' vegan foods while eating on a budget and eating from your pantry. I'll leave you with a photo of my darling niece TRINITY...
