Feeding 5 For $100 Per Week: First Week of August 2016

August is a longer month, so I am calling this a 5 week month. Our goal this month will be $500 or less for five weeks.

You might look at today’s pictures and wonder if you have accidentally stumbled onto someone else’s blog. We have disposable cups and plates, individually packaged juice boxes and snacks, bottled water, and lots and lost of canned soft drinks. What is this madness!

This coming week we are eating what we have in the pantry. My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and we are throwing a party. My SIL and our cousin are taking care of most of the food, and we took care of drinks, snacks, and dinnerware. We already have napkins and utensils in our stockpile, so this is the rest. Our entertainment budget is a little higher, because there will be a few meals out.
