A Challenge

There are over three weeks left in June and I've already managed to spend nearly all of our grocery budget! Last month I was so careful week to week but then all of a sudden we were out of many major items and before I knew it my allotted amount was nearly depleted.
In my own self defense, I did mostly purchased wisely and items we needed. Boxes of chicken were on sale at Safeway, we ran out of all our cereal at once , we threw a birthday party for Sierra which added some expense, and the list goes on.
My self-challenge is to go through my cupboards and freezer and be as creative as possible with what we have and buying only fresh fruit, veggies, and milk which will easily take up half that. We have food so there should be no excuse. Can I spend only $50 on food over the next three weeks? It'll be tough.

I'll let you know.
