In this hallenge, my daughters and I have to eat off 1.50 per day per person. Since 2 of my daughters are in school for two of those meals, I am taking $2 from that budget. So I have $5.50 per day to work with for a grand total of 27.50 for the whole 5 days.
For breakfast, we had Omelets.
Mine had 2 eggs, a slice of cheese and 1/4 of a Dollar Tree Keilbasa. Theirs had the same ecept that it was more of a scramble because with only two eggs, it was thin and hard to flip.
Willow snacked on a piece of cheese while she waited and I mindlessly handed it to her as well as my leftover soda from yesterday. So I had to add those into the tally. My total should be under 1.50 for the three of us and it did fall under that line as far as actual food goes, but I had to spend more to get the groceries.
Price paid / Amount used
4 eggs = $.99 / .33
3 cheese = $1.49 / .30
1/4 Keilbasa = $1 / .25
Dollar Tree Soda = $1 / .17
Total cost = $4.53 / $1.05 (.35 per person)
Budgetted money left: $22.97
My biggest challenge so far is going to be mindlessly handing over snacks and drinks. I do that a lot during the day and did twice already this morning.
