3 Weeks with $100 Challenge! Day 1!

I'm challenging myself! I give advise and help people with their budgeting all the time. Now it's time to do something that really seals in the title of "Amazing Budgeter"! I've come up with a challenge for myself. And that is to feed 2 people for 3 weeks on $100. No Coupons! Just me finding cheap inexpensive dinners to make. Plan out said meals and stick to it! I'll be posting and blogging my recipes and how said week is doing. Here We Go!


I went shopping today and spend 81.47. Leaving me with 18.59 for misc spending, milk, and what ever else we may need. Mind you I do have items in my household that I will be using but I will make sure to note which items I already had on hand and which are from my shopping. I went shopping a week ago, and just to make this clear I started and decided to do this challenge yesterday so there was no cheating and prepurchasing some items.
