I spent all of Q1 (January, February, and March) tracking what my household of two adults spends on groceries and toiletries. Mainly because I’m a data dork (just like my husband). But also because I absolutely love talking about budgets. I’m always curious to know how on par our spending is compared to other couples.
Hubs and I have a pretty solid system for how we split bills and expenses. In addition to our utilities, all groceries and household items fall under my umbrella. Anything from peanut butter to our weekly produce, to paper towels, to cleaning supplies. Anything that needs to be purchased for the home in order for it to run smoothly is my duty. Eggs, coffee, flour, beer, bread, hand soap, trash bags, wine… you get the point.
