Parrothead Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Tara mentioned the USDA Cost of Food Plans in the current Forks Over Knives thread. I'd never heard of it and was curious. I found the current chart (for July 2012) and did the math. Our family of 3 slides right into the Low-Cost Plan. I actually budget $13 less than the plan allows per week. At the monthly level the Low-Cost Plan is quite a bit more than I spend. But I still spend more than the allowable Thrifty plan. It was interesting. I wonder what those who fall under the liberal plans purchase. Oh, and my budget includes pet foods and household supplies. Where does your family tend to fit?
