|We are so made for each other!|
It is now the end of the Nothing But Dairy Grocery Challenge. I wish I could say that I was able to say we did it but we did not! :) There were too many good deals to stock up on for the rest of the year.
I am happy to say that we still saved $115 which will go towards Nathan's hunting fund or maybe swapped over to my front porch furniture fund. :) Either way we saved $115 which means we only spent $85.
Happy. Happy. Happy.
I did learn that we do not need to spend over $100 per month for groceries - I can stock up on great deals if I plan really well. Plus Aldi has great produce and dairy prices for us to cash in on.
Here is a look at what our meals were:
breakfasts: cold cereal with fruit and yogurt
lunches: packed lunches or leftovers
saturday: sausage with homemade macaroni and cheese, limas and cabbage salad
sunday: teriyaki meatball bowls served with rice
tuesday: spaghetti with ground deer meat served with biscuits
wednesday: surprised with pizza (thanks to my hubby. super stressful day!)
thursday: out of town Chick-fil-a
friday: out of town Lemon Chicken, rolls, mixed veggies
saturday: out of town taco bar --- Celebration of my nephew's birthday!
sunday: small group withness ---potatoes, sausages, chips w/ salsa and guac plus birthday cake!
I am thinking of other ways to challenge myself with the grocery department. I want to save as much money as we can to pay off loans and save for the future...maybe a family vacation or something. :)
How did you do this week? this month? Did you meet your goals? How or how not?
