At the beginning of April I decided to really challenge myself to try to save more than ever...my goal is to save at least 50% on all my grocery shopping throughout the month. Our grocery budget includes all foods, medicines, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and going out to eat. Here's how I did this week:
That's a savings of about 81%!!
The reason that the spent is a little higher this week is because we went to Mr. Gatti's for supper one night...spent $17.95 there. We weren't planning on going, but my oldest son's cub scout den won "free meals" there...free meals, but he was only able to redeem the "free meal" if a paying adult came with him. What in the world is that? If you are going to give a child a free prize, make it free with no strings attached. That's just my two cents worth :)
How did you guys do this week? Start small and keep going!! Any amount of savings is better than no savings at all!!
