Monthly Food Budget

It’s October 10th and we have $233.00 left in the food budget for the month!

Went to Aldi and spent $22.00. I was able to buy: Chicken, Angus Franks, Pasta, Eggs, Yogurt and some snacks. Using what we already have in the pantry and freezer, we should make it without going over the budgeted amount.

Below is a picture of the start of chicken fajitas.

Cut Chicken up into strips and cook 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Add  the fajita mix. You can use the packet of fajita mix or make homemade. We keep a small jar of homemade mix handy. Cut up peppers and onions and cook in separate pan. Add the pepper and onion mix to the chicken. Serve on tortillas with salsa and sour cream.

Hi There! Thanks for stopping by. Throughout our many years of marriage and family life we have had times were we had no debt and times when we have had too much debt. It's time to get off the rollercoaster ride and be completely debt free. On this blog we will share our journey, experiences, tips and ideas for saving money and living a more fulfilled life. I have worked in Social Services for 20+ years, mostly with low income individuals and families assisting with State and Federal Government Assistance programs and will be sharing that information as well.
