A few disclaimers before I reveal the hideous amount I have been spending on groceries. First, the amount includes everything we buy at the grocery store, not just edible items i.e. diapers, toilet tissue, facial tissue, cleaners etc. Second, grocery prices are higher in Canada than in the US... a few examples: 2 L of milk = $3.49. Bananas typically go for $1.29 per lb. Third, I have been extremely ill in the last week and so have been buying convenience foods. Ok, enough with the disclaimers. So far in January, I am spending a shocking $25.93 per DAY on food to feed a family of 2.6 adults (I count 0.4 for Chaos and 0.2 for Confusion). Ridiculous. Irresponsible. Now I know... time to change.
