    Will be making some progress today......

    doing kitchen duty so have pulled three pounds of hamburger, 2 pounds of sausage, and other assorted veggies from the freezer and will be using up lots of canned items. Some of the cooked meat will be going back into freezer but most will be cooked/used up for the next week or two of eating.

    Only bought milk and eggs on Tuesday.
    Ate everything from the the freezer/pantry this last week.
    Went to the store today and got only things on the list that was out of or needed for this weeks menu.
    Spent about $40 total for the month and hoping it last till the end of the month.
    May need to get milk before the end of the month. Just need to stay out of the stores.

    used up:

    PANTRY
    pack of Alfredo noodles
    2 cans beef broth
    refried beans
    sample pack cereal
    hamburger buns

    FREEZER
    1/2 pack shredded chicken
    4 packs frozen leftovers
    pizza

    none of this was even on my list. I couldn't take it anymore, though. I was so tired of looking at those 4 containers of leftovers! I had 2 packs of pot roast that was the meat of the soup, one bag of various sides, veggies and rice, and then some spaghetti sauce I used as the tomato element. It turned out good. The spaghetti sauce had new spices than usual for the soup.

    I went shopping. I know, but I had to return cat litter (now an outside cat with no need for litter, I had extra stocked) so I had a $13 credit. I bought:
    3 baking sodas (fridge, freezer, cooking)
    ketchup
    peanut butter
    sugar
    bread
    cucumbers
    lettuce
    potatoes
    cake
    toilet paper (20 rolls for 4.86-pretty good price to me!)
    free advil

    I have to bake for the fall festival this weekend (sugar, baking soda, peaunt butter) and will have salad and potato soup this week.

    I also went ahead and froze some leftovers that will go bad before I use them up (2 containers of veggie soup and 2 burritos). Not much progress this week if you see all I added, but I am using up lots too!

    Local store has a great deal on GM cereals this week.
    They have a in store coupon for $10 off of 6 GM cereals and you get a $6 coupon at the register on your next order. I did this 2 times and spent $6.xx Out of pocket and I still have a $6 coupon to use.
    I am going today and getting more since I am getting about $4 overage on the cereal using all of my coupons and getting items I need. They have butter for $2.49 Lb and I am almost out so will get some of that and some produce for the week.
    Hoping to keep my spending at $50 for the month.
    I am at $43.xx for the month so far.
    After today I should not have to go to the store the rest of the month.

    had to bake cookies for the fall festival at church. Thankfully I did it the frugal way. I looked to see what needed to be used up before deciding what to make. I used up several ingredients and didn't have to buy anything to make over 5 dozen cookies.

    Used up:
    frozen chocolate candies (crushed to be choc. chips)
    oatmeal
    coconut flakes
    brown sugar
    white sugar

    also
    ranch
    deli turkey
    strawberry pie
