1 gallon of milk -$3.00
1 box of cereal-$2.00
That is what I would get. But I would definately be stretching it. Hopefully I would have a few extra items in the house. But let me tell you I would be tipping the couch over and cleaning out the car to find change to buy more stuff for the rest of the week!
I would get 1-store brand bread, 1 -carton eggs, 3- canned fruit, 2- tomato soup, 1/2 gallon of milk, 3-canned veggies, 1-small jar of generic peanut butter, 1-Ramen noodle.
I have a family of 3 and this would be very hard, but if you HAD to, you could have serious portion control and strech those $10. We might be very hungry at the end of the week, but I am sure there are families who do it every week.
I could do it now, but that is only because my pantry and deep freeze are really well stocked. I would (and do right now) need a few items to make those in the pantry and freezer into meals.
Milk-$4.09-that is what I am paying for one gallon of whole milk
bread-$2.00-generic, not my favorite but it works
potatoes?? Not sure at the cost
-It would be really close. I am with 3lynns, I too would be cleaning out everything to find any extra change.
