8-Day $20 Challenge

Image I have over spent my budget on food this month and now I have 8 more days in my credit card billing cycle and only $20 left for food. Do you think it will last? I have some food in my pantry and refrigerator but I am going to have to get really creative. I need to  plan on breakfast for one (me), dinner for two, and lunches for just me. On the weekend, though, I’m not sure how that is going pan out.

I’m at work thinking about what I am going to make for dinner and stressing out a little bit. I do have plenty of rice in the pantry, also a half a box of pasta, some canned beans, tortillas, and dried lentils. I have some tomatoes and romaine lettuce that I bought yesterday. I also bought apples, oranges, and bananas yesterday. I have plenty of condiments and spices, too. As I list what I do have, I realize that there are options there.

Today is day one of the 8-day challenge. I know I will not need to go to the store to buy anything today but I don’t know what will happen in three days.

I have been following some really great blogs about cooking on a budget. I am going to explore and search recipes! Also, if you have any tips please feel free to share them. I thank you in advance!

Let the challenge begin!
