Pantry Challenge update:
-Okay so I'm not doing so well on the $150.00 limit. Accounting Dude and I have talked and it is easier for Accounting Dude to budget $40.00 a week instead of $35.00 the first week and $40.00 the next week. But still we have limited our grocery budget.
- I have tried to make a monthly menu, but we don't seem to stick with that. So now I'm going to try to make a weekly menu.
- I still haven't had time to clean out and inventory the pantry.
- I don't think that I will have anything left to save towards the refrigerator.
- Lunches have been a challenge, but this week I got lucky because with sales and coupons I was able to get Healthy Choice meals for $0.50 each.
On a happier note: Accounting Dude and I think that we will try to stick to this longer than a month. We also have used several things in our freezer and made some meals we would have never before.
I'll give you another update at the end of the month.
