This is the first time I am trying this. I am trying to spend $550 for the month. This includes food and cleaning products. Living in my house are myself, DH, almost 18 son, dd, dd bf, and dgs. I don't have many expenses with dgs. They take care of that. But ds has lots of teenage friends that come over.

Motherof2, Way to go!

In our area soda has gone up also. They used to have either Pepsi or Coke products for $1.00 a 2 liter. I haven't seen that in some time.

Everything is just going up.

Looking forward to this challenge.

Cau, I understand how you feel. With the way they keep raising the prices even with being careful about what we buy it still ends up being a fortune. I have only been able to meet my goal one month since I started this.
