Grocery Challenge Summer 2015

Anyone interested in doing this for Summer 2015?

Welcome to the Family Corner Grocery Challenge!

Grocery prices are going up and up, and we are all trying to keep our food bills DOWN!

Here's where we set a goal for our monthly budget and then track to see if we can beat that goal by spending less.

Everyone can participate! Just state your budget goal for the month, how many in your family, and what your grocery budget includes (food only, or do you also include pet food, non-food items, health & beauty, etc.)

There are 5 new movie giveaways.

I will start in July, to much of June is gone to figure it up. I have been taking advantage of some great sales to stock up.

Bought 10 Puffs tissues $.99 ea, the 180 ct boxes I did have a couple coupons so saved $.90 which more than covered sales tax. Kotex U liners 40ct $.99 a box picked up 6 for the stock pile.

I've been using the coupon rebate apps since Jan saving $10-15 a month.

I'm working on eating up the food in the deep freezer as it needs to be defrosted.

Right now we are
working on the huge stock pile of canned
goods we have as well as boxed items.
Pretty much only buying fresh veggies/fruits
milk and some bread

A bit late, but I definitely will join as money is tight after our move, plus food seems so expensive.

I was shocked to see that a head of cauliflower was 1.09/$1.71 the other day, so I left it on the shelf. Next year I would like to have a go at growing some vegetables.

Need to go as dinner is ready, I will post a grocery amount later.

I have really been over spending. So No meat will be bought until lots of room in freezer. So really concentrating on only buying fresh fruits & veggies, milk & bread
