Either way - I just think personally challenging yourself to avoid the shops as much as possible for a week will hopefully put a few more dollars in your wallet.
I would definitely give it a go if I hadn't already been using things up in my house over the past month or two.
We had SO MUCH stockpiled - not so much staples, but things like different tyes of noodles, meal kits, various tinned veg/fish etc. We're now mostly down to staples & fresh foods. Could still do it, but I'd be mostly living off of daal :P
I'm keen to try it, but I don't want to deplete my pantry with a baby on the way, I have been building it all up so I can deplete it after he's here!!
So I will be doing this in a few weeks time (probably out of necessity not choice )
I'm good at throwing meals together but I'm a dead set recipe follower for baking ... I'm no nigella - I've had waayyyy too many baking failures!!
This obviously is only meant for people who already have a backlog of food stored in their home... not to actually start from NOTHING and somehow buy $21 worth of food that is going to feed everyone for an entire week. lol.
It's also about cutting corners and not being super-healthy or whatever... it's more about eating enough to not starve, than following any sort of dietary plan. Kind of like how people without much money would probably love some wagyu beef and organic greens, but eat boiled potatoes and bread because there's not much else on offer...
I know what when I spent about $15 for hte week when we got back from our holiday, we didn't follow any sort of ideal diet... there was far too much sausages, rice, mince and potatoes for my liking...
