Grocery Challenge: Month 2 week 3

Another week already???

This week I just went to Sam’s Club and Cub Foods. We are still focusing on eating what’s in our pantry and freezer, so more fruit, veggies, and milk this week. And a few staples that were on sale. . .

Sam’s Club: total spent: $18.81 (milk and strawberries, blueberries, bananas)

Cub Foods: total spent: $31.09

There might be cake mix and whipping cream on my Cub receipt. . .


After swearing that we were going to eat all of the desserts in our freezer before making anything new last week, I came across this recipe for strawberry and white chocolate buttercream cake –> and I HAD to make it for a BBQ this weekend with friends. Totally reasonable, right? Winking smile


While I am totally into this grocery challenge and using everything in our pantry/fridge/freezer, I still want to do/cook/bake and that’s the balancing act.

Total left for the month of June: $23.55

Total doable! 6 days – I got this!! Smile
