Moving week is here–ready or not! There are a lot of last minute details to attend to and in between caring for our little girls, traveling for a few days to secure and clean our new rental, and my continued struggle with morning sickness and tiredness, it will be a busy week.
Since I knew that we would be too busy to spend much time on food preparations this week and that it would be easy to fall back on fast food or take out, my husband and I decided to devise an alternative plan.
We looked through our cupboards and refrigerator to what food we still had left in there (we’ve been doing our best to whittle it down over the last month so that we’d be down to the bare-bones by moving day) and came up with a list of some very quick and simple meals and snacks we could put together with what we already had on hand and a few additional ingredients at the store.
Here’s the list we came up with:
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Beans and rice
Turkey and cheese sandwiches
Chips and salsa
Scrambled eggs with hashbrowns and cheese
The best news of all, was that we were able to stick within our $40/week grocery budget yet again this week! Now obviously, this is not what we usually subsist on and I don’t know that it exactly qualifies as a "balanced diet", but it will be much cheaper and likely healthier than eating a diet of fast food. And hopefully soon I’ll be back to baking and cooking from scratch again.
So that’s one way we saved money this week. How’d you do this week? Post about the deals and
bargains you were able to snag this week or other ways you saved money
