Eating from the Pantry--Update far so good! I've made 2 trips to the grocery store so far this week and my total so far is $30.77. I was so proud of myself this morning. I ran to Target and ONLY bought what was on my that's impressive. I went through my list a few times with my menu plan and recipes and revised a few of the recipes to use just what I had on hand....hopefully they turn out well! :)

Here are my grocery trips:

This was my trip to Safeway earlier this weekend to get the cheap eggs and milk! Total here was roughly $6.00-I somehow lost my receipt. Agh! If you're we don't drink THAT MUCH milk, but I froze it. It's a trick I learned from my sister-in-law that had 4 kids ages 4 and under and lived 40 miles away from the closest city. She'd maybe go to town once a month, then stock up on milk and freeze it. It works! The eggs....well, we'll just be eating a lot of eggs, and I bake a lot, so they always seem to go fast! :)

This was my morning trip today to Target. Total: $24.77

***Just a tip....It pays to ask! They had Archer Farms Vanilla Soy Milk on sale, but there were none on the shelf. I asked if they had any in the back, they looked, but they didn't. But they gave me the Silk Vanilla Soy Milk to me at the same price as the "on Sale" Archer Farms milk. Saved me a few cents, but those cents add up!!

***And I got my FREE breakfast from Chick-fil-A this morning too!!! :)

Sorry if I was overly honest in my post. I just felt like if I got it out there then it wouldn't rattle around in my head and I couldn't make excuses. Thank you for the encouragement.
