As a Stay at Home Mom we tend to cut corners anywhere we can, coloring our own hair, cutting it (don't do this yourself, I'm still growing mine out), not many date nights with our spouses — basically any time you can save a buck in order to be home with your kids we'll do it.
I was browsing (an online virtual pin board) one day last week and came across a "pin" from this woman that cooked 65 breakfast/lunches and 35 dinners for $130. Sure, I want to see if this could really work.
I made my list of grocery items and trekked to the grocery store to purchase the $130 worth of items that I needed. It did run me a little more that $130 due to the fact that I tried to stick with healthir replacements.
This was on Friday, it is now Monday and I still haven't gotten up the motivation to actually pull this off. I tried, believe me I tried. I told myself this very morning that tonight will be the night. Psyched myself up for it and everything.
Now tomorrow will be the day because the use by dates are about to run out and it would definitely be a wasted effort. I'll let you know how it goes!
