After grocery shopping last week I had $87.77 left in the budget. My husband went out to lunch one day last week and spent $10 so my remaining grocery budget for the month is $77.77. My grocery budget for this week is $38.88.
I was able to make a meal plan out of foods that are already in my freezer and pantry so my plan is to not go grocery shopping this week although we may have to pick up milk because we have less than half a gallon right now. But hopefully at the most we will spent $3 this week on groceries!
Here is my menu plan using foods on hand:
Monday: Dinner with father-in-law who is in town!
Tuesday: Stir Fry (Chicken, Cabbage, Broccoli, Carrots)
Wednesday: Hamburger Gravy
Thursday: Grilled Steak with Potatoes & Salad
Friday: Grilled Barbeque Salad with Salad
Saturday: Steak Fajitas
Sunday lunch: Country Ham with Pintos & Cream Corn
Cream of Wheat
Scrambled Eggs & Ham
Here is a link to my grocery shopping methods so you can understand how I can go a week without grocery shopping!
