Out-boys are on their own

Groceries I will have to buy-will edit later with prices:
Half & half
Plain yogurt

**Bought a few extra things so my total grocery bill was $22.59.**

I think I'm going to try to spend only $60 at the grocery store for these 4 weeks. That will save me $180 if I can eat out of the pantry for 4 weeks.

Frugal Food Challenge

So I'm challenging myself to clean out our pantry and freezer. I'm going to do this for as many weeks as it takes. I'm hoping to make it one month. This week I only had to buy golden mushroom soup, mushrooms, and green onions. That may have cost $5.20. I'm not sure b/c I sent the hubby out to buy it so I'm guessing on what I know to be the normal costs of those items. I was going to make salisbury steak last night but we had leftovers instead. This just means that I will be using the golden mushroom soup next week instead.
