We are 1/3 done with our challenge. I haven't stepped foot in any stores yet. I made pancakes Sunday morning and was almost out of milk so I used some powdered milk I had in the cupboard. We had a family gathering this weekend and I scored some lasagna and a gallon of milk. The lasagna was enough to feed my family 2 dinners and lunch for hubby and myself.
I have spent 3 days with the thermostat set at 66. I haven't felt much of a difference. Of course I have been baby wearing all day today so I stayed nice and warm!
We are getting low on cereal for breakfast but the chickens have been supplying me with lots of eggs each day so we always have them to fall back on. We haven't made much of a dent in the freezer. We used up some peanuts and bagel chips that were in the cupboard tonight when we made chex mix. My husband is excited to get rid of some items that have been in the cupboard for some time. He wants to extend the eating from the cupboards and pantry only into next month.
As for produce I am getting low on apples but still have lots of oranges. I miss my bananas. I still have plenty of canned peaches, pears and applesauce. We are out of fresh veggies with the exception of about a pound of carrots. Those will be gone this week. Then I will have to maybe think about getting some items. I still have $30 left to spend.
