Frugal Goal Complete

Well, I did it. I spent less than $5 more on food from Sunday until now--7 days. My cupboard is really getting bare, so I will have to go to the grocery store today or tomorrow. I need to make a list and stick to it so that I won't go overboard. I have most of the ingredients for these dinners for next week: steak and oven fries, quesadillas, leftover steak sandwiches, pizza, spaghetti with meat sauce, pork barbecues.

I was really tempted to stop at Subway on the way home last night, but because I knew I would have to confess to you guys, I came home and raided the refrigerator. Thanks!

LOL. And we would of found you guilty as charged! ;)

I know that $5 subway sandwiches seem feasible, but I am happy you stuck to your goal. Congrats!

Now make sure to make that list and stick to it. Cuz, I have a feeling you'll be quite tempted to splurge (why do I think this? cuz after my no spend week i slightly rebounded)
