Eat from the Pantry Challenge Update 1/11



Just wanted to give a quick update on the Eat from the Pantry Challenge being hosted by moneysavingmom.com and lifeasmom.com. So far the only thing on my grocery list that is food is bananas, sugar (to restock my pantry), oil (desperately need!), Special K (have a coupon for a free box that expires at the end of January), Stacy's Pita Chips (coupon for a free bag) and Diet Coke (Phillip just can't live without them!). Pretty good, considering my goal was to spend as little on food as possible.

Lunch: fried steak patties, mashed potatoes, green beans (school lunch) for me and Emily; eggs and sausage for Phillip
Supper: Spinach Chicken and Cheese Calzones, mixed fruit
