So I'm taking this food challenge seriously!

February 6th, 2010 at 03:15 pm

I inventoried the freezer and cupboards including the garage which I didn't take pictures of.

DH and I went shopping yesterday since we had a break in the storms (just rain and wind, no snow). The challenge came at the same time my older sister and I challenged each other to staying under $200.00 for the month and $100.00 for her for the month of February. I warned DH and he is on board. Our total for groceries is $76.48 for the month.

We ended up getting some bulbs and a nice set of cookware for $9.97 at Costco. We bought another set for his mother. Ours we actually took the display set.

Along with the pantry and some greens still growing in the garden, I think we can keep it under the $200.00 goal.

Especially using up leftovers and pantry items like this chili I made for DH last weekend for his lunches:

or like this weekend for my lunches:

I am glad I have something to keep me occupied so I am not missing:

Although sometimes I think Landon misses her more:

All the cherrios she dropped and eating her leftovers that she threw from the highchair to him waiting below....

Time to watch Lifetime and knit while DH is at the local college game that is being broadcast on CBSC, quite exciting for our small local college.

    Under $200 for a month! And such nice pictures. You are amazing - I'm not worthy! Excellent work.

    Is that the freezer or the fridge? Either way, it's packed! My cupboard feel bare at the moment but i'm not planning on shopping til Tuesday (so as to consolidate my errands).

    I've been trying to get creative to use up some of what i've got, which is mostly pasta and pasta sauce, a can of refried beans, some frozen breaded tilapia cutlets and some frozen shrimp. I mainly don't have veggies, altho i do have canned black and kidney beans....

    Cute pix. Thanx for sharing.

    It's the freezer. I do not know why it is on it's side though. It wasn't in my files. Yes our freezer is packed! I did more organizing of cupboards and the garage cupboards today. Dh helped when he got home from work. We found a case of Classico spaghetti sauce we bought at Costco we had forgotten about!
