Doh! That's true.
Anyhow, in a nutshell, he buys and cooks great healthy food
for $21 a week but he is only on day 1. Interested in seeing how well he does the rest of the week.
My wife is now doing the $1 a meal challenge.

For example, cream is 8.00 per quart King Soopers and 8.00 per half gallon at Costco. Total no brained right? But Costco is way out of my way if I don't need a long list of items. So I go to Target for cream for 4.19 per quart. Only 40 cents more than Costco for a half gallon.
Another tip: Scout the half price
meat bin. The meat will still be good but there might only be a day or two left on code. Cook the meat right away and freeze the cooked meat for later use in casseroles, stews, enchiladas, etc.
The Ramen noodles thing....I did that too for a while. And man was I skinny! Not good!
Good stuff! My wife just scored a huge cuban bread loaf for 30 cents at Walmart. Thats enough for three meals
I have a confession to make... I LOVE RAMAN NOODLES. Add some peas, carrots, shallots, and some pulled chicken... whatever... and it makes a great lunch.
I know I know full of MSG.
