Week Two Results - Eat From the Pantry Challenge

I don't know why, but I am HORRIBLE at this challenge. I think if I had a real, tangible person that I was competing against, I'd be a RockStar Eat From the Pantry Challenger but for whatever reason, I went WAY over this week. Part of it was the pop that I stocked up on, part of it was the stupid Reinbeck garbage bags that I had to buy this week for $7.50, and part of it was that I once again cannot pass up great deals. Bread was on sale at Fareway for $.99 so I HAD to stock up and we eat LOTS of fresh fruit and veggies and it is simply more expensive to buy those items. I have decided to share with you my embarrasing way-over-the-budget weekly totals anyway. I'm no quitter so I'm going to keep going with challenge and hope to do better next week. How did you do this week?

Walmart - $17.98
Aldi- $23.64
Fareway - $17.64
Target - $11.52
Trunck's - $9.75

Week Two Total = $80.53 (Wow....$50.53 over budget!)


  1. Thanks for being honest with us. It's good to know that I'm not the only one who has a hard time with it. Way to keep trying! Just think how much you would've spent last year at this time and think of how awesome you are doing! Good luck this week!!!

  2. What happened at Hy-Vee yesterday. Did you make it there? Peggy

  3. Peggy- Never made it there....bummed that I missed out on the great cheese deal but I spent too much on clearance toys the day before at Target. Do you guys do the same deals in MO?
