Oh SNAP- Day 2

Standard

Today we spent a total of $26.94 on food. So I am still over but much closer to my goal of $24.85/day.

Here’s how Day 2 broke down…

Breakfast was pretty much the same as yesterday, except Jeff only had a yogurt which cost $.39, so our breakfast totalled – $5.74

No morning snack  today so that also saved us a bit.

Lunch: $3.49

Jack made a box of pasta which he ate with parmesan chese- $.99 for the pasta/$.50 for parm – $1.49

I finished yesterdays corn bread – $0.00

Jeff had an Aldi frozen meal $1.99

Afterschool snack – $3.31

We finished off the cookies from yesterday. $0.00

CJ  was obscenely hungry so he also broke into a box of special K crackers which he polished off – $2.99

Jack and Quinn finished off the rest of the pasta that Jack made earlier.  $0.00

Another pitcher of crystal light iced tea – $.32 for the pitcher.

Dinner –

I made BBQ turkey Joes for dinner which cost $9.99

2 pds grd turkey meat $5.98

1 green pepper $.67

1 onion $.30

1 bottle BBQ sauce which I got couponing for $.16

Hamburger buns $.89

Salad – Romaine, tomato, cucumber $2.00

In the interest of full disclosure I have to add an additional $4.00 for dinner.  Jack, Kylie and I went to a PTA meeting at Kylie’s school and the kids ate pizza and I had a diet coke.  Since we are not supposed to be eating out on this I am adding the cost of their 2 pieces of pizza and my diet coke to our total.

We did much better today but were still a few dollars over.  We now have only $97.79 left for the rest of the week.  No longer feeling so confident we are going to make it…YIKES!
