How low can you go?

So my husband and I were chatting about how much food costs, and asked what is the cheapest two people can eat on for a month. At first I thought $150. Then I got real, and said $200. Looking at what we really spend (maybe three or four times this much) $200 a month will be difficult, really difficult.

So we are going to challenge ourselves to see if we can eat for a week on $50. This means, no Starbucks, no eating out, no drinking soda. It will mean lots of homemade food. We start Monday. We made yogurt yesterday to get us started for breakfast. I made some hard boiled eggs for high protein snacks and we have a mushroom barley soup cooking in the Instant Pot for lunch tomorrow.

Wish us luck!
