    Way to recreate those leftovers. I need to improve on doing this. I end up trashing a lot of food, and that is so costly & wasteful.

    Great buys on the groceries. We eat tons of cheerios the kids really love them, but not very often can we get them for very cheap.

    StaceyS, good for you!! I think in times like this it is very important to stockpile all you can. I have quite a list as well and it continues to grow everyday. I believe that if for whatever reason, the economy gets so bad that food will not be readily available (which in some places it is already like that), it is good to have a large supply on hand. Bravo girl and keep it up!!

    I made a cross rib roast that I got on sale (and it came with free salad, french bread and frozen "steam and mash" potatoes) So good and it fed 5 hungry adults with a tiny bit of roast left for me to figure out what to do with. I'm thinking stroganoff sounds good.

    Hi Stacey,
    What was for dinner?
    Stacey I am very new and a bit confused where to post my daily (if I am in the mood to do that) comments achievements. Under the blog or somewhere else. Please help me.

    easy n' cheap, but most importantly... not threatening to the "never cooked in my life" peeps like me... I had no idea you could make your own granola bars... You've opened a whole new world! Thanks for posting!

    Well done Stacey! Hope you will post what you eat, it will be interesting to see how others spend their $25. I have started early too, to take advantage of being near store yesterday. Have done a freezer & pantry inventory so I can plan my meals.
    Hope it goes well for you

    Sounds like a fun challenge! How many people in your household? And does any of that money include pet food?
