This month, we’re shopping our kitchen in order to use up what we have so we can save money and clear kitchen clutter.
Here we go with Day 11 of the Pantry Challenge!
Today was a day full of errands, appointments, and date night, so I basically reaped the rewards of Sunday’s meal prep and left it at that.
This morning I was heading out with FishChick13 for an appointment and errands. We each packed breakfast and lunch, not knowing where we’d be. I surprised even myself with how easy it was with a few things already prepped! I even had Greek Yogurt With Muesli portioned out (not pictured) that made it even easier.
My homeboy (aka homeschooling son) is starting to get sick, so here’s hoping it’s not the Rona coming to call. I can tell he’s feeling worse as the day progresses.
He and FishChick15 made their own meals while we were gone. And all the kids made their own dinners while Bryan and I went out for date night. It really was a fend-for-yourself kind of day.
One of my errands included stopping at ALDI for the great priced blueberries they had on sale. Unfortunately, they were all gone. Boo. I did spend $8.50 picking up three dozen eggs and a box of lettuce.
That brings my monthly spending up to $159.81, only 22% of what I think I’ll spend this month, and nothing out of pocket since I had Ibotta credit.
I plan to make a small shop at Ralphs tomorrow to grab some butter on digital deal as well as a few other things, including sale blueberries, not as good as the ALDI price, but decent. I’ve got some free coupons, so I don’t anticipate it being a pricey order. We’ll see.
What We Ate
Breakfast: Home kids had alfredo pasta and pretzels respectively. FishChick13 packed yogurt and a Breakfast Cookie. While we were out, I also redeemed one of my Chick-fil-A rewards and got her some chicken minis as well. I had my yogurt and berries, per usual.
Lunch: I had a big salad with hardcooked eggs. FishBoy17 made ramen. FishChick13 packed a snacky lunch and FishChick15 had Quinoa Salad.
Dinner: Bryan and I were gone on date night so the kids made ramen and sandwiches, depending on preference.
How did Day 11 go for you? We’re ⅓ done!
