$100 Food Budget – Day 21

foodbudgetchallenge

So what happens if you’re on a $100 food budget for a month and you find yourself wanting something to snack on? Well one option is looking in the cupboard and finding some old chips. Actually, the Sun Chips weren’t that bad considering how old they were. I don’t remember when I bought them exactly, but I’m pretty sure it was sometime in 2009.

I also have some expired packets of hot cocoa mix which taste perfectly fine. But don’t worry, I’m not going to drink any expired milk. :P

I didn’t buy any food today.

Total Spent:  $81.01

Remaining Cash: $18.99

$100 Food Budget – Day 18

foodbudgetchallenge

Well, I didn’t intend to spend any money on food today but sometimes things turn out differently than planned. I was heading home when I remembered that I was low on milk. So I stopped to get milk and ended up getting a few other things too.

It’s funny how before I went on this budget I had trouble using all my milk or bread. Now they are the two things I run out of most quickly. Today I bought:

  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • 2-liter bottle of Squirt
  • 20 ounce bottle of Coke

My girlfriend sent me a coupon for a free 20 ounce soda, so my bottle of Coke was free!

Total Spent: $74.00

Remaining Cash: $26.00

Woohoo! This is the first time my remaining cash has been an exact dollar amount. I guess the big question now is, “can I make $26.00 last the rest of the month?” I believe that I can.

$100 Food Budget – Day 10

foodbudgetchallenge

They say snow is coming tomorrow and it’s supposed to get pretty nasty so I thought I’d better make a quick run to the store for a few things. Today I bought:

  • Milk
  • Bread
  • 2 cans of RavioliOs
  • One 12-pack of Dr Thunder
  • One canister of Lay’s Stax
  • One gigantic box of Honey Comb cereal

Total Spent: $49.36

Cash Remaining: $50.64

It’s only the 10th of the month and I’m about halfway through my money. Thankfully I think I have enough food left to last me the next four or five days. Of course, I’m used to being able to go out and buy whatever I want whenever I feel like it so this is definitely going to be interesting. The budget is tightening up.

An Amazing Accomplishment

I have accomplished something that I had attempted many times before. It’s something I’ve failed to succeed at many many times. Therefore, I feel a sense of pride and joy as I announce to my friends, family and the entire blogosphere that I have managed to consume an entire half gallon of milk before the sell by date!

How did I do it, you ask? Well, with the help of my friends, Nesquik (both strawberry and chocolate), Honey Comb cereal and Froot Loops with marshmallows, I was able to accomplish this amazing feat.

Let us rejoice! *rejoices*
