Last year I discovered my grocery bill ballooned to almost $2000 one month. I couldn't figure out why. It turned out that my brother-in-law was selling our groceries to his friends for beer.

It appears that you may be having inventory problems, not budget problems. It could be that your brother-in-law has found a new way to trade food for beer. Maybe you should be tracking the food in your house instead of what you buy at the store.
