We are now into day 8 of this challenge, so depending on how much you are saving per day, you could have $2 saved up, if you're doing the 25 cents per day. Or up to $8 if you are saving $1 per day like I am. I hope you will continue on with this?
I am still doing the pantry challenge, though mine is more like a freezer challenge. I have been using up things more in the freezer, rather than the pantry. I still haven't got around to doing a menu plan yet, I keep saying I am going to do it and never do it!!
Here are a couple more links to help both you and me planning recipes.

Had another busy day at work on Thursday. Once again the day just flew by and the phones were busy as well. I basically do everything in an office, like accounts payable, accounts receivable, invoicing, answering phones, and everything else in between. I DO NOT MAKE COFFEE THOUGH!!! My boss has figured it is easier and less aggravting just to make the coffee himself, than get me to do it...LOL
I also had a special project to do on Thursday reconciling an account, and sorting some financial things out.......that's my speciality...I suck at making coffee but I am good with numbers!!!!
Did you remember to put your money in your pot for the daily savings club?
Today's money saving tip:
Make a quadruple batch of a casserole. Casseroles are nice, easy dishes to prepare, but on busy nights, it’s often still easier to just order some take-out or eat out or just plop a prepackaged meal in the oven. Instead, the next time you make a casserole, make four batches of it and put the other three in the freezer. Then, the next time you need a quick meal for the family, grab one of those batches and just heat it up – easy as can be. Even better, doing this allows you to buy the ingredients in bulk, making each casserole cheaper than it would be ordinarily – and far, far cheaper than eating out or trying a prepackaged meal.
I just found this article and thought it was interesting: How to make a casserole with what you have on hand
