I am almost finished. In my last post, I talked about not being sure if I could make it the last few days without going over my budget because we needed milk. The next day after writing the post, I was talking to a friend about it and how I could try powdered milk. A few minutes later, she showed up at my house with 3 gallons of milk and CHOCOLATE! She totally made my day.
As a result, I was able to go 4 days this week without spending money. I did spend money on Monday, but that was only to send a package to my sister so it didn't count as groceries.
This week, I also baked a lot. I made 2 batches of wheat bread, brownies and zucchini chocolate chip cookies, and sugar cookies (from a bag.) We still ate from our food storage. We are running low on a few basics for lunches, but I still have quite a bit of food that needs to be used. We still have tons of potatoes and sweet potatoes, but made a big dent. Next month, I think I will continue cooking from my food storage, but will stock up on a few things. The goal is to not spend double next month.
Only 2 days left, wish us luck!
