Go through your pantry to make sure you don’t have any of these ingredients.

As you can see I am some $1.20 over the $55 mark this fortnight.  The problem appears to be those pesky oranges and the fact I forgot to include the soy sauce!  Perhaps you can get oranges more cheaply where you live. 

All groceries are from Coles Supermarket except for the spices and soy sauce which are from IGA Supermarkets.  It is assumed that you will already have rolled oats, rice, yeast, baking powder, oregano and oil from last fortnight.  If not you will have to add them to this list.
