I'm in! I've been tracking it this month and looking for a thread just lke this!
So far, I've spent almost exactly $200. We're emptying out the freezer, (we raise pigs and it's almost 'time'.
) There are 4 of us, dh, me and twin 16yoDD. Do you KNOW how much tthey eat???
We were out of everythign today. I needed olive oil, $22 ofr either 3 liters or a gallon, TP and paper towels for the month, 25 lbs of flour, a pound of shrimp.
My total will include all paper products, organic produce if it's not much more than regular. Dh and DD's take their lunches every day. I need to bake bread!
The menu this week will be sushi (hence the shrimp, which I will get 3 sinners out of.,) Turkey from the freezer.....3 dinners, 3 lunches, and tehn I'll be BEGGING them to eat it! Tacos using up beef from the freezer and taco shells I bought over the summer, with salsa from the garden, was tonight and enough for lunches tomorrow. Pesto from the basil and dried tomatoes from the garden, that's why I needed all that oil! (I'll be putting some up for the winter.) And Buffalo chicken. Also, oatmeal cookies, chocolate chip cookies, brownies to send to DD18, who just went to college, etc.
I guess the question is....how long before I need to shop again!?
