I must admit that the last few weeks my kitchen has seen very little of me. I have once again made it a habit of constantly eating out or bringing food home. It has to stop. I hate to cook. Seriously loathe it but the money I am spending for this bad little habit is ridiculous. Ridiculous I tell you. So I am going to challenge myself. Today I am going to the grocery store armed with coupons and I am going to buy a ton of groceries. Then I am going to see how far I can get. How long will my food and other supplies last? Normally if I run out of quick meals I scream that we don't have any food in the pantry and that it is time to go shopping. The truth is I could easily squeeze almost 2 weeks worth of food out of what I claim is only junk in the cabinets.
I am very curious as to how far I will get. This should be interesting. Do any of you care to guess how far I will make it?
Some stats to help you guess?
I have approx. 25 cans of veggies/fruits in the cabinets.
My budget for today's grocery store trip is around $115.
I do not need to buy any bath products such as shampoo, deodorant, etc. I have a huge stockpile of them thanks to the grocery game.
I have quite a bit of dog/cat food stocked up as well. But keep in mind that we have 4 animals to feed.
I have a huge pile of coupons I will be using today.
I also have a ton of spices already.
I will be packing the girls lunches for the first few weeks of school more than likely.
We go through drinks like there is no tomorrow.
I have about 7 meals worth of chicken and beef in my freezer at the moment.
So how long do you think we will make it? I am very curious myself. I am not looking forward to cooking but I have to save some $.
