Grocery Challenge July 2007

Here's where we can post our grocery-budget goals for the month of July. Can we come in under our grocery budget?

Anyone is free to join in the Grocery Challenge!

Thanks for getting us started for July, Barb. My goal is to spend less than I did in June (the amount of which rather surprised me!)

Count me in for July. My family also eats leftovers, mac & cheese or fried egg sandwiches for lunch.They also love to make mini pizza. We also eat breakfast late. Today we finished breakfast at 10:45. We do everything late in the summer. I guess we rebel against the scheduled winter months. dgd

July Grocery Challenge

Well ladies I started the June grocery challenge and I personally failed my challenge. My goal was for 400.00 but I went way over. I would however like to try again. So for July I am going to try to be more realistic and say I will try to keep it at 500.00. You all have done a great job for June. Do you want to join me for July?

If you will give me the link to your thread or tell me which forum it is posted in, I will move it for you.

Thanks, Tami, for straightening all that out! :yourock:

Liz, don't beat up on yourself too much. I bet in the 3 months before you moved, your grocery bill was very low since you were eating up what you had! Plus now you have your college-age son living in the house, and he's probably an eating machine

Jeandeanette, you shouldn't feel too bad either. Now you have a sense of what is realistic for your household in your location. So this month, try to do better than last month!
