Last week saw 1 nights of home cooked dinners, 0 night of leftovers/fend for yourself, 6 nights of Eating Out.

Zero trips to the grocery stores brought the weekly food spending to $0.00 and brought the monthly total to $0.00.  The few groceries we bought go on the travel budget.
I have 22 days left in my shopping month for September.

My savings percentage last week was 0%(without Rite-Aid trips)and October's monthly savings total came to 0%(w/R-A).

Leftovers going into this week......barbecue, Cole slaw, taco meat, taco shells-all leftover from what was here the day we left on the trip.

Here is this week's "food plan".....

1. Sunday--steak, corn casserole, collards, baked potatoes
2. Monday--Pasta
3. Tuesday--Pork Chops
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Pizza, Salad
6. Friday--Chinese take-out
7. Saturday--TBA

This week will see 2-5 new meals cooked, 1-4 nights of leftovers/FFY, 1 night of Take-Out/Eating Out.

What needs buying for this menu?  Not much if anything.  I don't know and I don't care right now because I just ate and I don't want to think about food.  ;-)

What is getting fixed and served at your house this week?

Was last week's plan successful, did you go off plan or did you not even plan what was going to be eaten last week?

Any great deals on food at your stores this week? 



  1. I hope your trip was fantastic and the company even better! Did we go off plan? Yes and I would call it going off the rails, but we just swapped a lot of stuff I had frozen for other stuff I had planned, so it added no additional shopping, except for a lake place stock up trip.

  2. Whew! If I had enough salt, I'd try it... hesitantly...

  3. Nope! Not eating whale. Glad you are having fun and spoiling yourself.

  4. I put as chunk of frozen ground round into the crockpot with 1/2 cup water. When I thawed, I put the Dawn Fresh Mushroom Steak Sauce bought half price and on my blog. Dried celery, onion, and garlic were put in juice around the meat. Now, I will fill the crockpot with potatoes and carrots. Tommy will eat from this all week at home--five meals. Some carrots and potatoes will stay with me, and I will eat them with chicken and cole slaw. I have other stuff--vegetables.

    I hope you had a good trip and show and tell us all about it.

  5. I might take a bite of whale, but not curry.

  6. This article is really a nice one it assists
    new net viewers, who are wishing in favor of blogging.
