While I was cooking just now, I realized why $121 seems like both too much and not enough to spend on food for the week.
It seems like far too much because I never spend anything close to $121 on groceries every week â€” $75, maybe $95, but not as much as $121. But, then again, if I needed to buy every single ingredient for every single meal I cooked all week, then yes, I probably would spend more than $121.
Now, with this in mind, should I just buy the things I would ordinarily buy? Or should I be trying to buy every single ingredient locally?
