Okay, I am preparing for my Food Stamp Challenge this week. For more information about the challenge click here.
I went shopping today. With me and Ester involved in the challenge, we have a total of $58.70 to spend on groceries for the week.
An interesting observation, I made shopping while shopping is that shopping for two is much easier than shopping for one because of the portions size. For example, a container of Oatmeal will make 30 servings but I only need 5 servings for the week.
It would be interesting to do this over the course of a few weeks because you could start to stock a supply of some staples. This would make creating some variety much easier.
Here's what I got for the week.
Eggs - 18
Milk - Gallon
White Flour - 5lbs
Wheat Flour - 5lbs
Mozzarella Cheese 1lb
Tomato Sauce - 2 15oz cans
Ground Beef - 2 lbs
My total bill was $36.57. I left a buffer for any of the condiments that I need to add in and any last minute additions.
Today, I am going to cook my whole wheat bread recipe.
