Entertaining on a Budget

This weekend, we invited some friends and family over for dinner.  We remained committed to staying within our SNAP budget.  We did not spend extra because we had additional people coming over.  In total we had seven adults and five kids.  The menu was veggie chili, brown rice, corn bread and boiled peanuts.

We were comfortably within budget and even with the overages from last week, this week we came in under budget and will be donating $30 to the Atlanta Food Bank from our savings.



  1. Nicely done, as always! I'm posting tonight about ways to afford a healthier Thanksgiving feast. I hope you and your family have a joyous and plentiful Thanksgiving! :)

  2. Thank you! Thanksgiving will be plentiful with thanks. As for food, I will be fasting that day. Post to come soon...
