The way things are in most of the world right now, money is tight. We are no strangers to this as Chaz and I have to plan our budget out each week. There aren’t many extras [if any at all] but we have a roof over our heads and food in our stomachs. Scrumptious vegan food, that is!
Here we want to show all of you where our money is going each week. Right now, we’re utilizing Vegan MoFo as a platform of sorts to get our starting budget of $45/week down to $35/week throughout the month of November. We’ll be documenting our progress, triumphs, failures, etc. through blog posts and image uploads of our receipts.
We have allocated two budgets: one for our weekly grocery bill and the other for our pantry staples. Because we use spices, oils, vinegars, etc. over the course of a longer period of time, it only makes sense to us to create a separate budget for these items. As of November 1st, we have not decided on a certain dollar amount to stick to, but we’re working on it.
We want to use this as an opportunity to show omnis, vegetarians and vegans alike that eating cheaply doesn’t mean sacrificing nutrition, taste or satisfaction.
***Our budget post-MoFo is currently $45/week. This is totally doable for not only our wallets, but our lifestyle and taste buds too! And as we learned throughout MoFo, this is much less than a lot of people are spending on food as it is. Thanks for reading!***
