I need 4 more of all 3 meals plus 6+ snack items (granola bars, fruit snax, poptarts), 3 desserts, 4 gallons milk, 2 to 3 boxes cereal and $40 for produce to complete out my month healthily, or more likely, I'll have $20 towards produce and $30 more grocery monies to plan wisely.

I also need to plan for Dollar tree on the 9th  for maybe $20 to include bread, milk, bologna, sweets, snax and misc. Also, I planned for $50 at the end of the month for milk, cereal, fast food lunch, and gas. This makes $90 total see breakdown listed below Payday for May is on a Friday April 30th so we should be good!!

Breakfasts are cereal, oatmeal, eggs, leftovers,

Lunches are sammys, top ramen chimichangas, pizzas, salads, canned ravs and leftovers.
