Well, we made it successfully through last week without too much turmoil. At the start of the week, I wasn't sure that my littlest guy was on board with us. One afternoon I asked him what he wanted for lunch and gave him the choices I had listed. He answered, "No I don't want that...I want a hamberger." After a little convincing, he accepted something on the meal plan. :)
Here are the grocery totals for last week:
$8 at Meijer--- that I mentioned previously
$3 for milk and yogurts
Grand total of $11 for last week.
Then, I stopped at Walmart Saturday night and picked up more yogurts, fruit, veggies and cheese for this week.
Total of $10 for this week
But, I still have to pick up milk for this week(probably around $3).
Here is our meal plan for the week:
"Cracker Barrel Breakfast"---Sausage Biscuits and gravy, eggs, leftover Hash brown Casserole
Grilled Cheese, Chips, Bananas---Salad for mommy
Potato Soup in Crockpot and crackers
Eggs and toast
