The 200 Challenge - May Update
It's time for The 200 Challenge update, May edition! I can't wait to see how you all are doing with spending less on groceries in 2010! If you're new to The 200 Challenge, you can read all about it here.
April has really flown by! Out of our $200.00 budget for April, we spent $208.63. I know, it's bad. I sort of lost track of our budget a bit in April. Maybe because it was super busy and we were gone a lot. We also had several out of ordinary special occasions that we bought extra food for, so that probably factored into it as well. It's discouraging, but oh well. At least I have a chance to do better in May!
Here are some of my meal ideas for the month of May:
Costa Rican Pinto
Mexican Layer Casserole
Lentil Rice Casserole
Parmesan Chicken, Rice, Green Beans
Chesapeake Spiced Salmon Cakes
Now it's your turn! How did you do in April? What do you plan to do different in May? Blog about it anytime this month then come back here and link up!
