i think the $25 for your husband's boss's going away party is irrelevant to this accounting.that isn't sustenance expenditure.that's entertainment. or a business expense. or therapy.but it doesn't belong in the food budget.even the usda wouldn't be that strict.
You're probably right. I'm not trying to hew to a budget yet, just to see how much we actually spend on all food and beverage. Maybe I'll excise this at the end of the month.
