If you read my post the other day, you know that I am taking part in the $1.50 a day challenge through bzzagent.com and have pledged to eat and drink no more than $1.50 worth each day.Â If you missed the post, you can find it HERE
Here is my day 1 run down:
1 cup of milk with my Carnation Instant breakfast--.4835
13.5 oz of Dr. Pepper -- .15
1 oz potato salad and 1 oz macaroni salad-- .125
1 cup of tea --.03
hard boiled egg, 1/2 oz of shredded cheddar cheese and 1 cup of milkÂ --- .2046
1 cup of Kool-Aid --.03
These brought my total to $1.0231 for the day.
I had planned on eating half a banana this evening but didn't get to it.Â I did have a hard time, as I expected, not drinking my Dr. Pepper all day.Â Since I had some money left to spend for the day I chose to drink another 13.5 oz of Dr. Pepper.
This made my final total for the day $1.1731 for the day.
It's probably a good thing that I left myself some lee-way to eat more tomorrow.Â It's sewing club day and I already have lunch planned as a hard boiled egg, banana, chocolate pudding, potato salad, macaroni salad and Dr. Pepper.
Now.....let me say....1 oz of potato salad and 1 oz of macaroni salad is just a teeny tiny amount!Â I didn't go back for more at lunch time, but have made it 2 oz for tomorrow lunch.Â 2 oz is still not much at all either!
Steve found milk, believe it or not, for just .50 when he went to the store on Friday!Â We had already got me some at $1 per half gallon, but he bought me 4 half gallons just for me this week at the cheaper price.Â This means just .0625 per cup....and means I can probably get 2 cups in per day!
They also had the potato salads and such on sale for $1 for 1 lb.Â I figured the price per oz., which is why I was trying to eat just 1 oz.Â Sheesh, he went overboard trying to buy that for me, buying 5 lbs of eachÂ LOL
He also bought me 2 dozen eggs on sale for $1 per dozen.Â This made me happy too making each egg just .0833 each.Â Normal price is $1.94 per dozen so I didn't even have eggs on my list as something I thought I would eat.
I also realize that what you read above is not near enough food for the day.Â I did get pretty hungry before supper.Â This is pretty easy for me so far because I don't eat as much as I should to start with.
I promise, tomorrow's post won't be so longÂ :)
