$5 Challenge

I'd like to throw down a challenge. The next time that you go to the grocery store or Wal-Mart or Target, set aside $5. While thinking of people that are hungry and visiting their local food pantry, see how much food you can buy for $5. I'm not saying you should do it every week, but if we all did it once in a while, we could stock the shelves at our local food pantries. It's also fun to get the kids involved (and teach them some math too!). Tell them that they have $5 to spend and ask them what they can get with it. Here's what I got:

3 cans of Campbell's Pork and Beans
3 cans of Del Monte veggies
3 cans of StarKist tuna
1 package of Ramen Noodles

The total was actually $4.97. I'm sure people with coupons could do much better.
Do you accept this challenge? Leave me a message in the comment section and let me know how well you did.

Happy Shopping!
