Menu Feb 7-19

I sat down and created a menu for about 2 + weeks I have been SLACKING in doing and following this to save $$ as well as having meals and not playing the guessing what I am going to take to work or eat for dinner. I have been slacking for months and I have been paying dearly by not eating &/or grabbing stuff out of the house to eat which cost me more then making it myself from home...HELLO Stupid...I can make burritos with Mexican Rice (free have all ingredients) plus shredded cheese (have this as well) and tortillas (this would cost me under $2.00) & I would get this 10 nice homemade burritos with sour cream and salsa (ALSO FREE have in the house) for under $2.00 yet the other day I bought a Rice and Cheese burritos for I am ashamed $3.50 what the hell was I thinking?? I wasn't... So this week I will be making and freezing different types of burritos....guess what my mom bought me tortilla yesterday I just heard about it from her so for FREE!!! I can make 10 burritos can't beat that....
