How Much Do You Budget For The Market/Store?
I was cleaning out my purse the other day and came across an old grocery store receipt from November (I love large purses and it just keeps getting heavier! I try to empty it out, but then I’m like oh I need everything in there, lol, a mess).
Anyways, I tend to do my shopping a month at a time, I don’t really like stuff sitting in the freezer, dried goods, I can manage. However, I tend to budget $100 – $150 per monthly trip just for the African store and this doesn’t include things like bread, eggs etc, just African store essentials. That amount comes to about £62 – £92 and N15 000 – N23 000 in British Pounds and Nigerian Naira respectively.
Bringing me to ask, how much do you typically set aside for your trips to the market and how often do you shop?
