Shopping today
Okay I did some stockpiling today. I did not do as well as most of you but I am still pretty proud of how well I did. I bought 43 items for a total of $82.31 that is an average of $1.91 per item! Here are the highlights.....
4 frozen pizzas $3.99 each
2 lb of bacon $5.00
2 10 Kroger ham $3.49
4 Starkist tuna $1.00 each
4 frozen veggies $1.00 each
2 packs El Paso taco season $1.00 for both
4 lb ground beef $1.25 each
12 boxes of cereal for $10.00 (that is less than a $1.00 a box!)
2 cans of Dole pineapple FREE!
My girls laughed when they saw the cereal. But I know that it will be gone in no time.

Meal Plan 11/9-11-15

Meal Plan 11/9-11/15
It is Monday again! I am going to try to get myself together again! Because of a new bill that has been added to the list I will be a really tight budget from here on out. I have to work on keeping my food budget to $250.00 a month and $50.00 for household.
So this week we are eating mostly what I have on hand.

Monday-Grilled Cheese/Tomato soup (I made it!)
Tuesday-Crock pot salsa chicken/rice/corn/cornbread
Wednesday-Chicken quesadilla/rice/corn
Friday- OUT
Saturday-Sandwiches/chips/pasta salad
Sunday-Beef Stew/cornbread

I am keeping things simple in the hope that will help me.
