Menu Plan Monday 10/3-10/9

Last week, I spent $85 on our food for the week! That's $15 below my $100 budget! But I ended up not buying buffalo for our burgers (we had leftovers instead), and I made sure to stay out of Target all week to avoid temptation. This week, my goal is to stay below $90. This is only for food as toilet paper, diapers, toothpaste, wipes, dish soap, laundry soap, dish washer detergent, shampoo, etc. come out of my $50 per month household budget. I have a few things on hand in our pantry like onions, buns, garlic, oats, flour and the basic staples, but our fridge is almost bare by the end of each week! Oh and we haven't eaten out except for once or twice in the last several months! Woohoo! Here we go! Linking up with Menu Plan Monday and Keeper of the Home's Plan It, Don't Panic, Week 2.
