I get payed again on tuesday so i just need to get stuff to last my DD and I until then!

We have enough Milk, a box of Mac n cheese, gronola bars, frozen broccoli and green beans, and some frozen chicken.

So what else should i get with my last $10 to hold us over until pay day?

Milk is the only drink we have...blech

I personally would buy potatoes, sausage, and dried beans. That would make fried potatoes with sausage and use some of the sausage in beans. Pasta and spaghetti sauce, eggs. There are a few meals. :)

If its just you and DD and just have to get through tuesday.  I'd make grilled chicken, m and c, and broccoli for dinner tonight and have left over chicken tommorow with green beans and then you'd just have to buy a side of some sort.  You could get some koolaid and sugar so you have something else to drink and maybe something else to snack on, popcorn or fruit snacks.  You should be able to do all that for 10 dollars.

Spaghetti noodles and sauce?  Couple cans of soup like chicken noodle, bread for sandwiches maybe turkey or grilled cheese?

 How about some dry beans and cook them in the crock pot all day, yummy dinner and cheap! Flour and make some dumplings and maybe add some chicken.

Or you can get some pizza mix for less then a $1 and make a chesse pizza DD loves that.

Look at store ads and see has things on sale. I shop when then have things by one get one free.

I'd buy rice. Goes well with broccoli and chicken. And maybe some more Mac N Cheese!
