Shopping Trip for Week 2 of the "Feeding 4 on $50 Challenge"
Last week's over-spending leaves me trying to stretch $40 as far as I can. (really should be $30 to make it even, but... yeah right.)
So. Here's what $40 will buy this week:
V8 Fusion FREE
Peanut Butter 2kg $8.98
Yeast (and lots of it) $8.98
Grapes (50% off) $1.63
Organic Apples (50% off) $2.99
Country Harvest Flax Bread x3 $1.25 ea. (all at 50% off)
Country Harvest Flax Bread FREE (they scanned too high, so policy dictates it's then free)
Eggs (2 dz) $2.00 ea
Total spent: $34.26
... leaves a bit of room for whatever. Meat or milk maybe. (though the meal plan should work with what we already have...) Or maybe I'll find a fabulous grocery deal on which to spend that extra five dollars...
I'm sure feeling the squeeze...
Some corner cutting includes:
-Saving milk and juice for meal times only.
-Baking buns for sandwiches this week (using bread for toast in the mornings)
-one benefit of having a family funeral is that the fridge fills with cold cuts. That covers sandwiches for this week and next...
-Choosing to snack on popcorn instead of chips or crackers.
-Choosing water instead of coffee or pop.
All healthy choices. (Minus the cold cuts...)
Hope the oatmeal holds out until next week...
