So I did very bad at staying under grocery budget for the month of April. I found way too many deals to stock up on. I am officially going to state it here...MY GOAL FOR MAY IS TO CUT MY GROCERY BILL IN HALF! I have a very well stocked pantry and freezer so I am going to have an Eat From the Pantry Challenge.
My grocery budget is $500 for my family of 6. This includes everything from food, cleaning supplies, bathroom necessities to diapers and wipes. I am hoping to spend about $250 for the month of May or less is possible. I am going to try and stay OUT of the grocery store unless it is for dairy, bread or produce. What do you say? Care to join in?
It is time to use up all that meat in the back of your freezer. What are you saving all those trial size samples of shampoo, deodorant and laundry soap for? Let's save some money this month and use up what we have. It is almost time for gardening again. This means those jars of pickles and tomatoes have been on the shelf for almost 1 year and need to be used up.
I would love to have you join in the "Eat From the Pantry Challenge". Leave a link to your post below. Make sure your link goes directly to your post about this challenge. Link back to my page so others can see how we are doing! I will be having weekly updates every Friday through May!
