Well, it is time to let everyone know what my final grocery tally for Mrs. P's Frugal February is. Drum roll please....$331.65. I am really happy with that amount. I usually allow a budget of $400.00 per month, so in that regard, I did well. I tried to stay at $300.00 or less for Mrs. P's challenge. I didn't quite make that goal.
I learned a few things from this challenge. One of the things I learned is to make a weekly menu instead of a two-week menu. I found when I tried to shop for two weeks, I wouldn't buy bread items or fresh fruit or vegetables for the second week. This meant I would end up in the grocery store again and that would spell disaster! So I am going to continue with my once a week menu planning and shopping.
I also noticed, after scouring my bank account, that I only earned $.02 in interest over the month! That kind of pisses me off.
So anyway, here is the menu for this week.
Monday - Pasta Primavera
Tuesday - Szechuan Shrimp
Wednesday - Mac & Cheese, green beans
Thursday - Grilled Salmon, couscous and a vegetable
Friday - Stromboli
Saturday - Pigs in a Blanket
Sunday - Pork Schnitzel, Creamy Corn
I am hoping Mrs. P will make this a regular feature of her wonderful blog. I have enjoyed the challenge. Mrs. P, do your linky thing so we can all see what everyone else did!
Hope you all have a great day - I played hookie from work and am cleaning house!! Then off to sew!
