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
