Today we started the day off with orange juice, cold cereal and yogurt with mixed berries. I only used two yogurts to share so I could stay within the 7 dollar budget for the day. We had leftovers for lunch with apples and a choice of treat that was left over. For dinner, we had pesto, mixed veggies and applesauce. We split bananas for a snack and enjoyed pop tarts that I got for 16 cents. Total for today was 6.98. The following are the totals for the week of January 1-7:
Total for the week was $48.56. I find that I just need to use less of something if we want to have it or eat less of it, but we can still have most everything we want. Instead of scrambling 6-8 eggs without thinking about it, we do 2-4. We have 4 oz. of juice instead of 8. We use less meat. There are so many deals out there if you just take some time to look. If I can do it, anyone can.
