Grocery spending so far

July 29th, 2017 at 01:33 pm

So our goal was $23 for groceries. NT stopped at one store Friday and picked up coffee (came to $6.56 instead of the $10 budgeted) and milk ($2.49 instead of $3). Total: $9.05

NT decided he could do without granola this week and found some probiotic in the fridge so didn't need Activia. And it looks like he's making do with iced tea instead of lemonade. So, this may be our only grocery spending this week!

We're running out of some staples/supplies, so I've been adding them to the list. But if it seems like we don't NEED them next week, I may delay buying them as long as possible.

We've crossed 21 things off our list of stuff to use up, and only two were because we had to throw stuff away. (And it wasn't much that got tossed -- a slice of cake and maybe 5 leaves of lettuce.) We still have 30 things on our list but we've been working our way through some of them, just haven't finished them off completely.

The kids have gotten into the spirit of it and now we've got a name: Team Eat-It-All. Big Grin

    Getting your DKs aboard Eat-it-All is brilliant! There is no rule that requires everyone eat the same meal if there is less than 4 servings. Can you fill in with some version of Smoothie or a roux based [thick, delicious] soup. The thing that trips me is that $ 6.56 cost of coffee should be spread over the number of weeks it covers.nine

    That's awesome!

    I have some tomatoes and zucchini in the fridge that are past their prime ... am planning on doing roasted veggies and quinoa for dinner tomorrow. I'm also planning on trying to make my own milk. If that's successful, I may be able to wait til Friday to grocery shop!
