This Shopping list is approx $119 (sorry I went over budget!), but you should already have most of the staples in your pantry. I had a lot of this already and my total finished spending was $94.32 (I added a lot of veggies to my list.)

I underlined the things that I make from scratch. Hopefully in the coming week, you will try to make some of them yourself!

Happy Shopping!
