February Food Challenge: Week #3 Recap

Okay, so we’re finished Week #3! Wahoo!!

I’m glad this is a short month, because so far I’ve spent $191/$200. And okay, that is cutting it pretty close BUT if you take into consideration I went to Mongolie Grill the night before my surgery ($30) and treated J to our Valentine’s Day dinner ($40), I’m not doing too badly!

So for next week I’m going to try REALLY hard to not spend any money on dining out, and only buy the essentials from the grocery store. I’ll probably only need a couple of cans of soup and some fresh fruit.

How did you do?
