Food Stamp Challenge Update Two

Mr. Roy made an unscheduled run to the Winn Dixie a couple of days ago but he saved his receipt so we can publish it.  Here it is:

2 boxes elbow macaroni - 1.25 each
Ketchup - 1.99 - the real reason for the unscheduled visit to Winn Dixie; we HAVE to have ketchup
butter - 2.50
canned tuna - 2.50
rice cakes - 2.59
salad dressing mix - 4.99
2 lemons - 1.33
milk - 3.39
2 bags of spring mix lettuce - 3.79 - bogof
red cabbage - 1.90
bananas - 2.17
green pepper - .67

total 31.23 - remaining food stamp money for June - 121.47, which comes out to 5.78 per day for the rest of the month.  I'm hoping this will even out as I don't think we'll be going back to the store for at least a few days.

  1. Okay, I need the details on how to do this? How much per person? I'm thinking that we will do this in the fall when it is just me and Mr. J.
