As I shared a few days ago, one of main goals this month is to create a budget and stick to it. Unfortunately we were hit with a few medical bills last month that I decided to pay at the beginning of this month. Additionally, my husband had two pledged donations he had to pay on in April. Due to some miscommunication, we ended up using all of monthly discretionary funds this weekend. Oops!
I am still committed to sticking to our budget! After crunching the numbers, it looks like we are over by $15 if we don’t buy any groceries for the next 11 days! Sounds crazy but going to try. Some call it the pantry challenge; others call it making ends meet. I am going to try to get the kids involved to inspire them to eat whatever crazy concoctions I come up with.
This weekend, my daughter and I made pizzas with a gluten free crust we brought that my son turned out to be allergic to. Not the best tasting pizza we’ve ever had, but I had fun making them with the kids. Today we made vegetarian chili with a bunch of random veggies in our refrigerator. Add in some cornbread and enjoy! Delish! I’ll be packing this for lunch all week.
