RM100 for your groceries is not enough!


How much do you spend to buy groceries every week? How about every month?  Lately, I notice that after the prices of many important things hike up, RM100 per week is not enough even after you follow your shopping list. I've tried to stick to my shopping list every time I go out to a supermarket. However, with every thing is not getting so cheap, we somehow have to adjust to cut down on some unnecessary things. I admit that sometimes we tend to buy things that we don't really need like some unhealthy snacks. Doing the budget now is not easy because we need to readjust and reconsider our priorities. At the end, if we don't try to readjust, we will end up spending more than we should. huhu.

So, my questions today:
How much do you normally spend for groceries every week?
How do readjust your budget?
Is there any other ideas on how to cut on certain expenses?

as salam knur,
sy ni belom ada anak, kalau shopping pun utk 2 org je. biase g giant, mesti abis 300++. kalau suami ikut, bole kurang sket, sbb dia bole kontrol kan. kalau sorang, lagi melonjak..

tapi sy beli utk sebulan lebey. tak campur brg basah lagi. beli seminggu skali. brg mmg mahal skang.

I shop in Giant. My weekly grocery expenses is around RM150.
I think groceries are getting more expensive these days.

So, the conclusion is let's choose our priorities and see how mush we can save.
