What's for Dinner: Corn Dogs & Popcorn (Bryan has a meeting)
At the Sewing Machine: Just finished a tiered skirt for Bitta
On the Scrapbook Table: Maybe some scrap time in St. Louis?
Just for fun, I ran the numbers of how much it would cost to feed our family according to the government. Amazingly they must have added in some "pork" (pun intended), because our monthly total came to $1198.16 on the THRIFTY plan! I didn't even count Hunter since his diet doesn't count toward our grocery bill (at least not directly).
I'm assuming this number is only for food, not other items like paper products. It makes me wonder how huge we would be if we ate as much as the government expects us to! Kind of makes me wonder about those daunting estimates of how much it costs to raise a child. Does anyone smell a birth-control agenda? But I digress...
For the record, we spend around $400 per month to feed the 10 of us. This is our food-only number. Do your own calculations here. The directions are in the fine print at the bottom of the page.
