If you're joining us for our Food Bill Reality Check....put a ziploc bag in your purse or car labelled food receipts and put all grocery and eating out bills into it for 7 days.
You've all given me great feedback on what you THINK you spend...so now lets do this experiment and let the "chips" fall where they may..so to speak.
I'm counting all products bought at the grocery store including soaps, cleaning stuff and yes...wine.
For eating out...every latte, chocolate bar, beverage...
Next Monday, send me your report!....how much you thought you spent compared to what you actually spent. Tell me how many people you feed and what part of the country you're in...ie MidWest, East Coast.
Here's a little summer snack for you to enjoy while you face your reality....
