The Meal Challenge Results!

A few weeks back, Nicole at Help Mama! Remote.. and I took part in a friendly YouTube challenge.  We decided to see who could feed their family for less. 

Now, just because I'm The Coupon Sista, doesn't mean I had this in the bag.  I know that a lot of my readers and blogger buddies are just as thrifty (if not more) than I am.  Plus, Nicole's an ALDI shopper too, so I knew I had my work cut out for me.

I decide to make a simple easy dish that is popular here in Minnesota.  It's called Tator Tot Hot Dish in our house and my kids love it.  It's a yummy comfort food that is perfect for a cold winters night.

Nicole's dish looked delicious too.  I loved her idea of using ingredients on hand to help stretch the dish and make it even more tasty!

I know she said that she spent about $8 bucks but because she already purchased these items, I don't think they should count in the grand total.  So her total should be more like $4.67 not including the cheese.

Oh so close!!!  We were withing 20 cents of each other.  Way to go Nicole!  I'll call that a tie!

Basically, the point was to try to feed our families for $5 or less and I think that we both did an awesome job!  Plus, this was a lot of fun to participate in.

Do think you can top us?  Well you just go ahead and try!  We would love to hear about what you come up with!
