$10 Challenge
Store 4 cans peas and 1 packet Instant Mashed Potato 

$20 Challenge
Store 4 cans peas, 1 packet Instant Mashed Potato and 4 cans fruit

I think the fruit and the peas are fairly self explanatory, but the Instant Mashed Potato could be an odd choice.

Use Instant Mashed Potato when you don't want to eat rice...or pasta.  I recently purchased and used a packet of  Aldi Instant Mashed Potato and was expecting to taste as gross as the stuff my parents use to buy.  I was pleasantly surprised though.  It was actually edible, and I would happily use it if I didn't have fresh potatoes in my cupboard.
