$25 a week grocery challenge
I think it's time to resurrect this challenge. Who will join me?
$25 is an arbitrary amount, that, a few years ago represented the average amount a person would get per week on food stamps. Well, food costs have gone up and so have benefits. Check this link to see what you might receive in your state: Avg Monthly Food Stamp Benefits - Kaiser State Health Facts
For me my weekly amount per person is 31.75. Or 254 a month for the two of us.
The challenge is to eat for 30 days on that amount per person. You can spend it however you like, weekly, all at once, or throughout the month. You can draw from your stockpile, but the majority of your meals should be from what you buy with the food stamp amount listed in the link above.
Please post your shopping lists and menu plan. You can use this thread, or the FV blogs.
The challenge begins March 1. Who's in?
