June Food Stamp Challenge: Grocery shopping week 1 *update*

Yesterday I ran to Harvest Foods to get milk and I also bought Manwich sauce and a quart of beef stock (for my beef and lentil stew).  The total came to $9.xx, so we'll call it $10 even.  Every Friday night my mother-in-law buys dinner for the 4 of us and my brother-in-law.  We almost always get take out or delivery, but she's sick and I didn't find out until the last minute.  Sooooo, we ate out tonight on our dime and it was $21.20 and so worth it ;)

My maximum for this month = $360
Spent in week 1 = $77.32 (not counting non-food items)
What's left for the next 25 days =  $282.68
