Frugal Food Stuff For the Week of May 17-21

May 15th, 2010 at 09:34 pm

Well, I am off on another challenge to eat healthy and cheap this coming week. I thought about making chicken soup using some chicken bones I had in the freezer along with other stuff I would buy. However, I noticed boneless chicken breasts were on sale for $1.19 per pound, which came out to $3.45 for what I believe is 5 chicken breasts. I also bought a bag of 8 organic oranges for $4.69. I have 1/2 a bag of raw carrots leftover from last week, so the cost for them is negligible. I have 10 tea bags left. I usually drink 1 cup of tea a day while at work. I bought a 12 pack of bottled water. So, here are my lunches for the week. I also have some nuts leftover from before.

Chicken breast, orange, snack bag of nuts, snack bag of carrots, 1 bottled water, 1 tea bag

I am coming up with a high estimate of $2.63 per lunch to eat for this coming week.

Update: I got an updated bill in the mail for Hospital Debt #1. I made out a check for $20 and will mail it on Monday. This brings my balance to $377.58. Yea!

In the coming weeks, I am going to work on getting some disaster preparedness supplies together. My hubby is Red Cross disaster volunteer and so I am going to put together a pack for him to take if he gets called out. I think it should contain a first aid kit, bottled water, basic non-perishable food, tools, a hand-crank radio, a little cash, and whatever else I can find. I want to put it all in some kind of backpack or other easy to carry bag. We already have one hand-crank radio for our house, but I will get another one for his pack. I will put together a separate pack for our home. I am going to check for yard sales and sales at stores!

    good going! DF usually has salad or leftovers for lunch, or occasionally if he's running late he takes a tin of tuna and a two minute noodle pack (ergh! NOT healthy by any standards! but quick and apparently tasty... lol!)
    i usually forget to eat lunch so i don't bother buying 'lunch' ingredients for myself. i finish work at 2pm, so by the time i get home, take dogs for a walk & have a shower it's only a couple of hours from dinner time, so i usually just have a cup of tea and an apple or something. Smile
