    A Long While!

    My problem?
    We can barely get by on $1,000 a month .. just for food!

    My question: Is anyone else dealing with these kinds of food costs?

    How much do most of you spend on your groceries per month?
    (My #1 question)

    We are actually surviving on frozen dinners like marie callender's and Stouffer's.
    (Both really do have some good selections!)

    Problem is, after a while you get in a cycle of boring dinners.

    The same meals over and over again and Not just with the frozen meals!

    It's everything!

    Once you pass the 70's in age, you've damn near run out of choices of foods that you haven't already eaten hundreds of times!8(

    Thank You
    Dont buy pre processed ready meals, they are staggeringly bad for you and poor value for money, Learn to cook and buy raw ingredients.

    We cook two meals a week. Usually i make a curry, and there's usually six portions, thats 2 or 3 days, and the wife will make maybe a bolognese, a chilli bean, a fish pie. Usually 4 potions min, two more days. Two days we cook nothing and just nibble. We eat very well for very little, we buy most of our food from the local market, and off the wholesale vegetable man that calls at the local bars or the wholesale butcher on the industrial estate.

    Yesterday we bought from the veg man a 56lb sack of potatoes $20, 10lb massive tomatoes $6 and 5lb red peppers $3. Half the tomatoes will be pureed to make other dishes, and the sack of potatoes has plenty of large ones to bake, plus we us an air fryer to roast them, and we do my wifes Supermash, which is better than sex.

    Ive figured out how to make Stuffed Parathas, chapattis, Lime Pickle, and Onion Bhagees. we spend about $250 a month on food, including about $60 - $70 feeding the two shovel guts cats who own us.

    I get spices in large bags from the Indian/Chinese supermarket, as well as other stuff like Thai paste, Mustard oil and chinese Condensed Sweet and Sour sauce (same as the restaurants use)

    The answer is to learn to cook, eat better for the same money.

    We don't really keep track right now, but probably should. It's at least what you are spending, maybe more and there are just the two of us. But it can still get boring and we use frozen pot pies, ziti, etc occasionally as well.
    Nothing is cheap right now. This inflation is wrecking budgets, companies and more. It's a huge problem for our adult children right now.

    We cook our beans and do not use canned products much. Some of the vegetables and fruits we eat are home grown.
    We do eat out at a fraction of what it would cost in the USA.

    I don't mean to be gloating ..... it's just what I have been experiencing for the year and a half that I've lived here full time.
    How did you wind up in Brazil?

    I like to know where all of that money is going, I'd suspect he is bribing people with the extra money "For Food"
    It's definitely graft...............OR..... they entertain ALOT.

    Two meals for 2 at 6 or 7 dollars is not our problem.

    We don't eat those everyday, they come in towards the months end due to money.

    We do have lots of home-made meals but that is where we start running out of ideas for different meals.

    And if you compare costs, frozen meals can and do compete with home-made.

    Stouffers has a great salisbury steak and gravy meal that is Excellent and gives us two days of dinners.

    Bob Evans mashed potatoes are as good or better than any home-made.

    Two days, two dinners for around twelve dollars can't be beat.
    (Don't poo poo Stouffer's or Bob Evans until you try them. Darn near as good as restaurants)

    Marie Callender's chicken pot pies for $3.50 are huge and are made with real chicken.
    (Enough pie to fill up anybody)

    Most of Callender's foods are real and not bi-products.

    Nope, our problem is not caused by frozen dinners.

    It's prices!
    Yes, it definitely is prices. I cannot believe how much food has gone up, I hadn't been paying attention to it, because I'd been in and out of the hospital and, wasn't doing any shopping, I went to the grocery store recently and, was shocked.

    Double, even triple prices, from just a few months ago.

    I've never paid 6 bucks for a dozen eggs, or, 4 bucks for a loaf of bread......5 bucks, for the kind my husband likes.

    Chicken wings? Forget about it! I'm not paying close to 7 bucks a pound!

    I do have to admit, I too, love Marie Callender's Chicken pot pies!

    Is there a Costco near you? They sell a box of 8 MC pot pies at a price that comes out to less per pie, than Wal-Mart's price.
