Weekend Shopping & 2 Week Meal Plan

I did all my shopping at Fred Meyer this weekend. Once Saturday morning, the last day of the weekly sales and then on Sunday night, the first day of the new weekly sales.

I spent $49.96 which is well within my goal of $30/week during the pantry challenge. I also have $10 leftover if something comes up - like running out of milk.

I was also able to splurge on one of my favorite treats, hummus and pita! I ALWAYS check for hummus markdowns and was delighted to find some this weekend. You can't see it in the photo, but it's under one of the yogurt cups.

I also strategically bought only non-vanilla yogurt cups for DH's lunches. One of my kiddos only eats vanilla but resists the big tubs. Since I still have 2 tubs left from the last shopping weekend, this forces her to eat the bulk. Bwahaha.

Finally, I bought plain half & half for my own coffee. It's cheaper than the flavored stuff and a teaspoon of sugar does the trick for me.

Two Weeks of Dinners
