    Yeah, I know. Luckily I only have to go through to Friday (is that cheating?)

    I would but I've basically done that this week because we were really short on money. I'll be using a lot of my pantry stores over the next few days.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone

    The logic of this is entirely lost on me. Won't you just have to spend extra the next week to replenish your supplies? And how does fresh produce factor into it? I don't think $21 would even cover my banana expenditure, let alone other fruits and vegies :/

    haha, yes you do have to spend more the next week. But I like to eat down the pantry and freezer every few months. I find things go bad/end up getting chucked out otherwise.

    I think it does still save a bit because you have to put more thought into what to make and there is no room for impulse buying.

    We will still be eating fresh produce, luckily I have a bit on hand though plus frozen leftover meals which contain lots of veg.

    I see it as a great way to use things from the pantry as in mine they usually het lost and then expire by the time I remember and hunt for what's in there. Great idea except I'm going to just try using what o have in pantry and if getting meats and veg to go in it goes over $21 I will still be happy as I have used things that I probably wohkd look over if you know what I mean..

    Yes I think this thread will be incredibly handy when we want to eat down the pantry for whatever reason, but will be less helpful as an ongoing $85 a month grocery budget.

    That's a tricky one ... I'm guessing maybe you could do it next fortnight and just try to keep your bill to half + $21 (which would equate to $21 for the week).

    Well I'm planning in just doing this week for $21 instead of my usual budget then next week go back to my usually budget.

    So DH was at a friend's house today helping with some maintenance and they have just sent him home with gluten free cupcakes (I can't eat gluten), fruit salad and an amazing beef stirfry!

    Soooo kind of them. And looks like my challenge just got a little easier haha.

    Aren't you just going to have a much bigger shop next week though to replace all the staples you have used? Which will even out anyway?
