Eating poorganically, couponing, and being cheapy-McGreepy are BACK ON, folks. This month I am going to try to return to a more poorganic diet and budget after seriously slacking over the summer. We are going to TRY to feed and diaper and consume all our consumables this month for $500. (eeek! I’m a little scared.) I’m going to try to use good old fashioned cash money so that we don’t cheat. (Pray I don’t drop a $20 dollar bill on the ground. I’m seriously a total klutz. This could happen.)
Can we be poorganic on this amount? (REAL un-processed food, if not purely organic)
Can we stick to $500 TOTAL dollars for consumables, including food, paper goods, and toiletries?
Will Anika FINALLY be potty-trained so I can stop buying dratted Pull-ups?
These are the burning questions that I will be blogging about over the course of the next month.
Today I got $300 cash out and spent $76 at Costco and Ollies. I’ll try to tell you what I bought. Unless I say something was organic, it wasn’t.
- Pull-ups $24
- Clementines $7
- Organic Honey $9
- Dates $7 (Homemade Lara-bars in the fridge right now. Whoot-whoot! Burned out my twelve year old mini chop food processor. Thppt-thpppt!)
- Raisins $8
- Mini Cukes $4
- Blueberries $4
- 6 lbs bananas $2.80
- Jalapeno Palmetto Cheese $4 (Um . . . um . . . I’m trying to think of a way to make this sound poorganic, but all I can think of is how yummy and cheesy it is.)
- Natural Instincts Hair Dye $3
I don’t have a picture for today’s post. I’m sorry. If I’m going to be blogging every day, you really have to keep your expectations pretty low. I know I will. 😉
I’d love you to answer in the comments if you didn’t participate in the Facebook discussion. How much does your family spend per month on consumables?
