Eating from the Pantry Challenge


What we have eaten:

My mom made us lasagna and brought it over

Ramen Noodles, I still didn't feel like cooking and the kids love this stuff!

Tonight I made salisbury steak, mashed potatoes and biscuits

This week has been quite the adjustment. Getting them all back on schedule after a long school break is tough. So it has been way too exhausting to even sit down and meal plan.

So far I have had to buy juice which Luckily I got from Target $2 for 2 Juices, and 1 gallon of milk $3.49.

I did make another trip to Shoprite, My husband is a major Coca Cola drinker and I don't want to pass up the 5/$10 sale, but of course I had to spen $10 to get that price, so there went $21.00 out of my budget. I did however get some things to add to dinners. I meant to get some fast Fixin chicken nuggets but for some reason the Shoprite I went to did not have anything Fast Fixin. I'll probably have my mom pick some up for me at the Commissary, it is much cheaper there anyway.

Eating from the Pantry Day 2 and 3


I have been a bit lazy with the meal planning, hopefully once we get back into the school routine I can get back on track. 

Yesterday I made Tony's single serve pizza's for everyone, which I got free at Weis.  I sure hope they come out with another $.50 off a Tony's Single Serve, this pizza is surprisingly really good. 

Today I again waited until the last minute to decide on dinner and had to improvise.  We had chicken fajitas made with taco seasoning and homemade refried beans I made a while back and froze.

I am still getting the hang of making meals and freezing them.  The beans were just ok, next time I think I will just refry the beans and add seasonings later.

First Shopping trip of 2010

My husband and I managed to get away without the kids to do some shopping for the house at Ikea and then at Shoprite.  Bringing my husband into Shoprite wasn't such a good idea because he has no sense of saving money and getting deals.

Spent $45.10

We got:
5- 12 packs of coke on sale for 5 for $10 used 5 $1.00 off coupons
4- Nabisco Single Snack packs, 4 are 12 packs one is a 15 pack on sale for $2.99 used 4 $1.00 off coupons
10- Dannon yogurts on sale 10 for $3.99 used $1.00 off coupon
6-  Banquet Sausages $.99 each
2- 10 packs of Hi C juice boxes $1.79
4- Pillsbury biscuits $.99 each used 2 $.30 off when you buy 2
Oreo (Chris had to have these) $2.99

Orville Redenbaucher Popcorn on sale $1.59 used $1.00 coupon
BK Kringles $1.67
Chocolate syrup $3.49
Oscar Mayer Lunch meat $5.99

We saved $62.59

So this was pretty much my junk food trip, I should only have to go back for bread milk and odds and ends to complete meals.  I am thinking the $54.90 left in our budget should be fine.

Keurig K Cups 50 pack $15.75 shipped

Coffee People, Donut Shop K-Cups for Keurig Brewers (Pack of 50) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging]

I am so in love with our new Keurig that I can see it costing me an arm and a leg to use once sometimes twice a day so I began the hunt for the best deal. Yea I can use a 20% off coupon and buy an 18 pack at Bed, Bath & Beyond but nothing beats this deal here.
You will need to sign up for auto delivery which gives you 15% off but you can surely cancel once your first shipment has shipped. You can also use code KCUP9306 to get an additional 10% off.

Offer expires January 31, 2010
