2-Week Menu Challenge

An update on my 2-week menu challenge - THIS is HARD!! You can see the frugal blogs I follow and it is so difficult to read about the great deals, knowing that I won't be taking advantage of them for 2. whole. weeks??! The Albertson's deal is especially killing me! You can read about it here, here and here.

But, we are doing absolutely fine even though I don't have any bananas. If I were to stock up before doing this challenge again, that's the one thing on my list because of course, that's what my four-year-old asked for yesterday morning! On Sunday, my parents were over to help me with the kids and my dad did some little house projects for us so we fed them the meatloaf on Sunday night. Bonus is that they invited us to dinner for Wednesday night, so I didn't have to find a substitute for the meatloaf night - phew! I'm waiting for my veggie box tomorrow to plan Week 2. Check back for the rest of the plan and how we're faring.

You can do it! Good deals come around all the time. Maybe something better will come up in 2 weeks!
