Need groceries for 5 days. Can you do it?
Go!


Oh and what would you buy?

I won my bet!!! I bought enough groceries to feed us all for 5 days with 48 dollars.

We have:
Spaghetti
Chicken jambalaya
Red beans and rice
Hot dogs

A lot of you ladies have asked what we do for breakfast and lunches.... We already have breakfast food here. Lots of it. And we eat ate breakfasts and no real lunch instead we have an apple and cheese or yogurt for a snack about 2 o'clock. We did however buy meat and cheese and bread and chips for Dh to have since he's at work by the time we do breakfast

This. All I buy on a weekly basis is produce.
