Promises to Myself and Saltine Crackers

So, I promised myself I would only spend a certain amount of money on food this pay period... and I pinky swore I wouldn't go back to the store before the 15th. :P  Don't worry, we aren't starving, we're just actually eating through all the food we have in the house!  I mean, why is it that food gets eaten, but there's always those items still in my cabinet from week to week? Why did I buy it in the first place if no one is going to eat it? Well, we're eating it this week! LOL

This morning when my son woke up and puked, I thought, "Oh crap. I don't have any saltines left."

So, after getting the bed cleaned up and setting him up in the living room on the towel throne, I made Saltine Crackers. They're a hit! It was an easy task and worth it!...for now. I do like the convenience of packaging from the store.

So, tell me. What's the most interesting thing you've done in order to save a few dollars?
