I love challenges! And I'm in the mood for a new one.
Our grocery budget isn't very high...250 dollars every two weeks for 6 people. No, not much at all. But I'm cutting myself back to a hundred dollars a week. That includes shampoos and t.p. and all the different soaps we use. I went shopping two weeks ago and spent 300 dollars~ it was shocking. I don't think I've ever spent that much before.
SO do you think I can do it? I'm taking out cash and I'm going to see what kind of magic I can do.
I'll let you know how it goes.
If I can't do it, I will feel like a total and complete loser.
But I'm going to try my darndest.
So what are the stores on my list, you ask? Broulims and Albertsons. Possibly the two most expensive stores in Idaho. I miss having a Winco close by.
And we started another new challenge which I hadn't thought of as a challenge until now, but it most definitely is.
The kids have each picked a meal they want to make and each of them have a night next week to make it.
We'll be having spaghetti and meatballs (josh), split pea soup and rolls (anna), pepperoni and cheese pizza (stephen), and chicken strips and corn (emily).
Definitely a challenge.
And guess what?
Josh never got a haircut.
