2018 Grocery budget

So last year, I squeaked it under the wire!  Goal of $7000, came in at $6997.16.

But what to do this year.  Increase it for sure.  These kids can EAT.  And, I'm focusing on reducing my use of plastic - meaning more bulk bins, less large bags - even though bulk bins are often more expensive per pound.

So I was thinking of inching it up a few hundred bucks.  But I think I have to go with $150 a week, or $7800.  That's a big jump, and we are already averaging $160 a week - so not sure how realistic.  Something to shoot for anyway.
