Do you know how much your monthly grocery budget should be? I have received so many questions from you and I thought it was time to answer. Setting the right budget each month is a cornerstone in reaching your financial goals. You need a money plan, a realistic one at that.
On the expenses that are only paid once a month, it’s a lot easier to not overspend. It’s the things like running to a store or going out to eat that can really mess up our plan. That’s where we tend to spend more than we realize. Even if you’re tracking your spending (which you totally should), mistakes can still happen. You need to have a plan set in stone (or at least flexible stone) so that you can make sure you’re on the right path.
In the video below, we’re diving in just how much you should be spending each month for your groceries. Learn how to set your grocery budget – the right way!
