Do I honestly think I have a shot at this? Personally, I don't know if I will be successful at this or not. So many of our allergy foods are so expensive. On the positive side,
- we do have a large stockpile of food that I bought at bargain prices to be used
- we do cook from scratch
- we will be getting lots of fresh produce from the garden soon. (This is what probably kills my food budget. We love raw, fresh fruits and veggies - not frozen or canned.)
- It is summer, we don't tend to sit around and eat as much - too hot. And we're too busy!
- Morgan spends alot of summer vacation with family. A teenager eats way more than the rest of us. Also, we will not have to feed her friends and boyfriend while she is not here!
I am going to attempt this challenge. Thankfully, it is in the summer when schoolwork is not as structured. I plan on getting the whole family in on this challenge.
It's a win-win situation. Even if I am not successful at feeding my family for $25 per person, I will be paying more attention to my menus and budget. It's bound to bring our food budget down for at least a month.
Are you entering the challenge? What's your strategy?
