Cheap and Cheerful Chatter: $300 Grocery Challenge -- Menu Ideas?

I've spent $134.21. This means I have $165.79 left to spend. I am thinking (because why not add a challenge on top of a challenge!) that I will grocery shop this week at Target. I need trash bags, body wash, and toilet paper in addition to food and I have several high value, Target specific coupons. So, my faithful readers, my goal is to spend less than $70 on groceries at Target. Any good menu ideas?

Here's what I will still have on hand that can "roll over" into next week:

1 loaf of wheat bread
1 package pita bread
3 boxes of pasta
2 cans of black beans
1 can of white beans
cheddar cheese (large brick)
18 eggs
tomato sauce
tomato paste
frozen green beans
frozen corn
frozen fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries)
a few packages of Shells and Cheese
the huge box of Cheerios that will not die
large box of Bisquick
(plus other odds and ends not worth mentioning like yogurts, applesauce, etc.)

  1. My kids love to make pita pizzas (pita, tomato sauce, cheese) and then I cook them in the toaster oven. You could also have breakfast for dinner and make omelets.
