Our last day of this challenge! I have to say our whole house was somewhat relieved to have this over! Not that it wasn’t doable, but having to remember to take pictures of everything we made, and more than once groceries had to be un-put away and set on the table for a picture. So when we no longer needed to do those things I think everyone in my house was a little grateful!
Like most other days, breakfast and lunch were the same- cereal/Oatmeal/leftovers/PB&j. For dinner it was my 15 year old son’s night to be in charge. He chose to make Biscuits & Sausage gravy. You can get the recipe here.
For this dinner we spent:
- Sausage- $3.00
- Butter- $0.75
- Milk- $1.00
- Biscuits- $2.00
- Corn- $0.88
Total cost for this day: $7.63
Running Total Budget for the 30 days used:
Groceries purchased: $646.85
Groceries used in meals: $297.38
Date Night: $99.33
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.
