$100 Grocery Challenge: 3rd week of January
I ended last week at $100.53. I have upped my amount to $150. Let's see what I got this week.
I went to BJ's and got milk, soy milk and bananas. We eat a lot of bananas.
I went to Meat Farms later in the week. More bananas, other fruit and veggies. Hubby asked for OJ. I bought the bread because we had pasta and meatballs for dinner.
My total was $12.35. Total for the month is at $125.54.
I made sausage and peppers. My son wanted it on pasta so that is what I did. I used peppers that I had frozen over the summer.
I made a pot of sauce and Hubby made his meatballs, putting the ground beef that I got on sale to good use. I forgot to take a picture. These 2 containers went into the freezer for future easy meals.
I made chicken rice soup. I was sweating the veggies first.
We had tacos, breakfast for dinner, chili from the freezer and leftovers throughout the week.
We had steal cut oats for breakfast several days. I made a big pot at the beginning of the week.
We also had waffles, bagels, pumpkin pancakes and eggs for breakfasts this week. The strawberries were frozen over the summer.
What did you make this week? Are you using items up from your pantry and freezer? How are you doing on you grocery shopping this month? Are you staying in your budget?
