So for today: Breakfast :$1.95
6 eggs. $5.89 for 5 dozen, so $.60
4 whole wheat tortillas. $1.83 for 11, so $.64
About 2 oz cheese. $12 for 5 lbs (actually close to $11 but couldn't really remember), so $.30
2 7 oz bananas, $.47/lb, so $.41
We forgot milk (don't worry, the girls get a ton of liquids and calcium).
Justin and I didn't eat-I know, most important meal of the day and all...
We're still figuring that one out. Like I said, we make our own bread. We've been meaning for a while to figure out how much it costs (definitely not $3 a loaf like at the store) but haven't sat down to do it yet. But the girls had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and carrots and ZoeBel had mango, crackers and a boiled egg for snack. ClaireBeth had somewhere between the two. I had leftover stew and biscuits (more stew than biscuits) and a boiled egg. And Justin doesn't remember to eat half the time...
Dinner: Total non-leftovers: $4.36
Pork chops. 1.95 lbs at $1.66/lb, so 3.24
Mashed sweet potatoes from leftovers, so no clue.
Same with the salad-spinach, boiled egg, mozzarella, craisins, carrots, corn, broccoli-yum.
For sake of simplicity we'll figure everyone drinks their milk, so today we're looking at 52 oz milk. So 2.75 a gallon (we'll stick with this throughout as well) and we're looking at 1.12.
Justin and Jessica Snack: 2.24
Smoothie pack. 1.79.
Last quarter of a bag of frozen strawberries. .45
handful or two of spinach. 2.5 lbs for $3.79 (the main reason we joined Costco. Seriously)???
Snacks we'll start figuring tomorrow, partly because it involves weighing stuff and the like. But we're looking at less than $10 a day, if we're conservative. Well, maybe a little more with the smoothies. And since we're going forward, not backward, we won't include the half a bag of Reese's Easter Eggs we've been noshing on...
