Food Expense November 2010

Looking at our food expenditures for the past three years we have averaged about $550/month. This includes groceries, eating out, McDonalds, Costco, and others.

Here's the breakdown of our food expense:
72% Groceries
16% Restaurants
10% Fast Food
2% Misc (coffee, alcohol, etc.)

In comparison with our current income it is about 11% of our budget. Not bad. We'll aim for 10% so as to not rock the boat too much.

That's a great job considering we currently host a bible study on Thursdays which includes dinner for our friends and many other dinner parties. My wife has a gift of hospitality and I believe she has been doing a great job exercising her gift.
