Challenge

My challenge for January was $400 for the month 2 adults, 1 teen, 1 preschooler, 2 dogs and often two more children on weekends and weeknight dinners. This includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc. I was doing well about 2 weeks into it and then challenged myself to $300 and currently I am at about $226 with about a week to go. Yeah!
