    Happy you gave shot out to Tessie. I would also try to visit a food pantry or drive thru food pantry. In my area there is one on Saturday. I try to go at least once a month.

    I like the basic idea of this challenge. BUT, I think you would have gotten more bang for your buck if you allowed yourself the 20.00 limit only instead of the 1.00 per item limit. For example the original can of tomatoes you wanted plus the avocado would have averaged to 2.00 for both, still keeping you in your range. By doing this I think you might have been able to add the fresh carrots. Also, on the same idea what about a 1lb or 2lb bag of beans, could have been less. I am in a different state so I don't have a full pricing in your state, but I am thinking of more stretching of the dollars. I appreciate the ideas and gleaned a few that I will add next time I go shopping. Thank you so much.

    You can extend that avocado a little bit more by mixing it with a little bit of tomatoes and a vegan mayonnaise inside of a blender and you'll really fluff it up and then you could spread it over a lot more recipes than just slicing up the avocado

    I add diced fresh mushrooms to the boxed rice pilaf and "helper" type mixes. I know you're working with under-one-dollar items. The Fresh white mushrooms in my area at Aldi's are under $1.50 and they work great.

    I tried with the Lipton brand onion mix putting it on chunk cut potatoes and roasting them. It was on their website. Really good and kind of comforting which would be nice during the winter months.

    You did a great job!
    Wow,the price for basic canned foods is high. I never noticed the price because I just use the bulk beans I have on hand.
    When I was at a loss on what to make I always liked the simple 7 ( 7 ingredients or less) cookbook to get good basic recipes to do basic meal plans.
    I recommend that you try to grow herbs. Plant them with your flowers, they also flower and blend in. I now have herbs in the house drying ready to use all winter long. Home grown herb tastes so much better and adds a more complex taste to basic dishes than store bought herbs.

    Daniel did a great job!

    This was great! Our Aldi is much more expensive in CT! This was very limited and you did a great job. I think next time you can cheat and buy the rice and see how many times you will use it and divide that price! Also poor Daniel- lost his pudding!!

    As a family of three (I also have a son) on a tight budget, I find this video so wonderful, inspiring and helpful. I never thought to do such a challenge. I just go day by day, but this challenge is such a novelty, definitely trying it!
    I usually go for dry legumes, that I buy in bulk, it's more bang for my money, and might get a few veggies for what I save, like carrots, broccoli or some lettuce. So that's my tip for people who want to do this for even less!!!

    Daniel was a great edition! Reward him with his pudding!

    Would not a couple bags of dried beans have made the same quantity as several of the cans? Then Daniel could have had pudding! LOL

    Why didn't you buy dried beans to go further. No carrots celery or onion? Lentil soup?

    And you wouldn't have made it out under $20 except for the Illinois grocery sales tax suspension.

    I think that you could have made it that the average price per item was $1. Those canned tomatoes are much cheaper in the bigger can, and were only .19c over!

    Bagged beans are a lot cheaper you can get a pound for a dollar and cook them yourself

    I'm really not trying to be a Debbie Downer but I have to live on $25 a week and the way you're doing it you would never make it. you can get store bought canned chili and things like that for under a dollar already made you don't have to buy all of those unnecessary ingredients that takes all of your money

    I can see we're being vegetarian is to your advantage in the shopping spree. Unfortunately our family are diabetic and meat eaters so making that many dinners would be much more difficult for $20. You would have to eliminate all of the high carb choices that you made.

    Love the challenge but would love to see same challenge without any rules other than staying at $20

    This would be more helpful if you actually showed how and what you make, as I'm a visual learner not auditory, so just hearing what you do doesn't help me.

    You should have let your son have desert since he helped you stay under budget ha ha ha
