This challenge is going to take some creative shopping and some serious planning, but I've been thinking about it for a while now, and I think I'm ready to try it. The $50 budget will be ONLY for food for Korey and me - baby supplies/formula/other household items will come out of a different budget (so will date nights, which we tend to do once every two weeks). I also don't have to cook dinner every night of the week - since my husband works overnight shift starting at 6pm, I usually don't cook a big dinner on the nights he's gone. And we definitely need to get better at utilizing leftovers around here - last time I cleaned out our fridge I threw away so much food, and I hate doing that!
So, I'll be starting this challenge next week, but for this week I'm going to get my feet wet by at least posting my plan.
Sunday - Roasted Chicken and Vegetables
Monday - Breakfast for Dinner! French toast, bacon, and eggs.
Tuesday - Chicken Taco Soup
Wednesday - Leftovers (Korey works)
Thursday - Soup & Sandwiches (Korey works)
Friday & Saturday - We will be out of town visiting my parents!
