Debi's Daily Dollar Idea: Stay Home

Today's idea is a complete no brainer: stay home!  How many times do you run to the store for a couple things and end up with a cartfull of items and a deep hole in your pocketbook?  So for this week I challenge you to live off what is already in your cupboards.  If you have your heart set on a particular food for dinner but find you're missing an ingredient, fix something else!  Take stock of what you have on hand and make up a week's worth of meal ideas using those items only.  In addition to unnecessary items you'd come home with from the store you'll also save $$ on gas.

If you look in those cupboards and find that they're bare and you just can't feed your family without purchasing a couple things, write down exactly what you need and then purchase ONLY those items.

Post how you did!
