For a Monday, this was a VERY easy day! Breakfast & lunch were typical. Cereal, and leftovers/PB&J sandwiches for lunch. Then for dinner because at this point our fridge was getting pretty full we had a Leftovers night!
I pulled out tons of leftovers from the fridge, some tortillas, cheese, and a bunch of random stuff and told everyone they could have whatever they wanted to make or combine from the leftovers. It was pretty awesome. Some had cheese tortillas, some had lasagna stew, some had street tacos, some had pork quesadillas, everyone pretty much made whatever sounded good out of food we already had made and we didn’t have to make anything new!
The best part about leftover nights- it’s FREE!
Total cost for this day: $0.00
Running Total Budget for the 30 days used:
Groceries purchased: $567.10
Groceries used in meals: $278.75
Date Night: $74.33
Our budget for these 3 for the 30 days is: Groceries- $600, Date Nights- $100 & Pizza- $100 Since we may not use all the groceries purchased in this time, and will be using some things we have on hand already, we will be tracking both the running total of the best estimated cost of meals each day as well as the cost of groceries/date nights/pizza purchased during the 30 days.
