Week 1 update- March Madness

Hi!
If you are wondering what in the world I am doing, check out here. So, I can honestly say that I did not buy any food product this past week. You know what? We have been eating really, really well. I am sure that will change this coming week though.
  • All of our fresh fruits and vegetables are gone. This is where I just may cave...
  • We still have a little less than a gallon of milk.
  • I was a little depressed this weekend since we were not spending money on food or entertainment. I know there are plenty of things to do for free, it just really made me realize that I spend money when I am bored!
  • Hubby did not make the vow to not spend on food, just me, so he took us to Subway for dinner last night. I was so excited! Go $5 footlongs, a few meals taken care of!
  • I am going crazy without chocolate. I really NEED to store more chocolate! I have definately felt a scarifice here!
  • Other than that, it has been pretty easy and I have been very creative so far.

I LOVE A CHALLENGE!

Wow...good luck with that. That would be too difficult for me. I guess I am lucky though in that I am not really the one responsible for buying food :)

You know, with Spring Cleanup coming along things will be put out in the streets..things you can refinish and bring into a style all your own using items you probably have stored away in your house.

Hi Jen, I have some chocolate stashed away.... I will bring you some of my stash. It helps get me through rough days. Stephanie

If you are craving chocolate, it's because you're thirsty. Also, I was thinking there was too much sugar in my girls diet having a Juice box every day so I bought a fiji water bottle. They are small and kind of squarish. I can refill it a few times and she likes the change.

Good luck with this challenge.
