Hunger Challenge: Shopping

Realization: This is going to be tougher than I thought. Darn.

I spent a good hour of my Friday night pouring over the ads and putting together a shopping list. My menu included only ingredients that were on sale. I also decided to try to save a few dollars just in case of an emergency (emergency being me having a terrible day and needing a cookie from Whole Foods).
