2 Week Menu Challenge COMPLETE!

Grocery Money Spent: $0 - I did it!

Here are the rest of the week's meals:

Thursday - leftover Rogue Chicken Soup
Friday - Dinner at some friends' house

This Challenge really wasn't that painful and I learned how to make do with what I have on hand. Even after the challenge, due to other obligations that we had yesterday I did not really have time to put together a shopping plan or menus for the week. So I looked in the pantry and determined that we really only needed milk and bananas. I am going to try and keep going this week because I know that shopping for next week will potentially be expensive!

Grocery Money Spent after the challenge: $6.53.

This has also been a lesson that I have been spending too much on those daily shopping trips. Planning ahead seems to be the key!
