Need help with menu planning
Thursday, October 14, 2010
I'd like to throw this out as a challenge to anyone who reads this.
I've been very short of money this Month. My daughter is going to give me $30 that she owes me, and I need help in using it to make it last for 12 days (I get paid again on October 27.)
I currently have on hand:
7 rolls of toilet paper
about a quart of milk
half a loaf of bread
2 pounds of hamburger
4 or 5 beef patties
package of frozen cauliflower and broccolli
1 can of peas.
2 cans of tomato sauce
half a box of Cheerios
a few boxes of Kraft mac & cheese
about 3 days of coffee
For some reason, whenever I know I'm short of food, I feel hungrier than usual and tend to make the worst choices. I need suggestions on how to use what I've got and to stretch the $30 for the next 12 days
What would you put on your shopping list if you were in my shoes? Would it be a better plan to not go shopping unless I'm out of something?
