$5 or Less Pantry Building Challenge: 6/15/2019

It's time to share how we're building our pantries with $5 or less. 

Remember this $5 is not part of the weekly groceries budget. It is set aside to be used just for stocking up in any area of our pantries.   

Here's what I added to my pantry this week …




I've used quite a bit of evaporated milk over the past few weeks so it was time to restock.  Off to Aldi's I went where I purchased these 7 cans for $.65 each for a total of $4.55!

We use what we stock in our pantry and restock as needed and evaporated milk was what we needed to restock this week!

What did you add to your pantry this week with your $5 allotment?

  1. Last weekend I found a huge bag of bruise bananas on a clearance rack for $0.25. From that 1 bag of bananas, we made 2 different kinds of muffins (banana rhubarb and banana chocolate chip), 2 loaves of banana bread for the freezer, 2 batches of strawberry banana smoothies (even used left juice from canned peaches and pineapple in the smoothies) which I poured into popcicle molds and froze, a couple were eaten fresh despite the bruises, and I still have 2 very ripe bananas left. I plan on making something with those this weekend.

  3. Lidl had graham cracker pie crusts for 35 cents each so I added 4 to the pantry. These make easy desserts in the summer! Total spent was $1.40.

  4. Two cans of Spam - not terribly exciting (or healthy) but I like to keep some tins in the pantry - just in case and it was on for half price last week.

    1. Margie, excitement doesn't fill the tummy, Spam does and while it may not be the healthiest thing or possibly even our first choice, it has it's place!

  5. Patsy you did really well on stocking the evaporated milk and such a low price compared to here where we pay about $2.95 per tin :o .

    We found some more bargains with our $40 a month pantry budget and stocked up on 48 rolls of 3 ply toilet paper for $14.99 which is a stock up price here.

    I have around $12 left for the month for other bargains if I see them.

    Have a great week :).

    1. Lorna, that is expensive for evaporated milk! The price you paid for toilet paper would be a good price here too!
