As an update since its been almost two months since I've moved I spend about 35-65 a week at the store for food. It just depends on if I am just adding or if I have eaten all the food I had in the fridge. The sales matter too, one week I had great sales. The last two weeks have been meeh for sales.

How much do you spend on take out? I usually spend anywhere from $30 to $40 per week. The problem is take out. I usually eat out two to three times a week. My budget is currently $200 but I have decided to increase it to $260 and decrease my discretionary fund by $60.00.

Soup is a great meal to have when it's cold out. Homemade soup is easy; you can use whatever is left of chicken/meat or whatever, add in some vegetables. Works well to toss whatever is leftover (mushrooms, broccoli, etc) from a meal.

Once you make it yourself and realize how easy it is you'll never eat canned soup again - yech. Soup plus a piece of good bread makes for a good meal in the fall and winter.
