Menu Monday

I have decided to try something new and list the cost of each meal. I will try to list if the item is something I already had in my pantry/freezer or if I bought it when grocery shopping.

Monday- Hot dogs-Free from my parents, Buns, from my freezer, French Fries, also from my freezer.  $5.64 total plus a few pennies for condiments

Tuesday-Shrimp Stir Fry - Shrimp and frozen Stir Fry Veggies from my freezer, Rice from my pantry - $6.50 total cost

Wednesday - Chicken Fingers, Sweet Potato Fries, Green Beans  all from my freezer or pantry.  $6.97 plus a few pennies for the crushed cereal and spices for the chicken coating

Thursday- Pepperoni Roll-  I have every thing for this in the pantry. - I estimate this is maybe a $5.00 meal???

Friday- I have no plan for this day prolly left overs

Saturday- chicken patties, buns and chips- $5.67 plus a few pennies for condiments

These are mostly just quick estimates and the next time I grocery shop I will try to keep better track of my prices I buy for meals


  1. Melissa, I went grocery shopping this weekend. Hadn't been in 4 weeks (other than to grab milk or bread, etc.) $250!!! UGH, UGH, UGH!

  2. Andi, I do not think $250 is bad if you had not been in 4 weeks!
