This is the last day of the grocery challenge. I made it!! I spent $36.56!!! This DID NOT include drink here or there or the occasional $1 hamburger my husband may have purchased for the kids. This was strictly groceries. I DID NOT eat out AT ALL!!! Today for breakfast was either cereal, pop tarts, toast, and/or applesauce. Lunch was chips/salsa,Cheese Nips, and turkey sandwiches. The afternoon snack was FREE frozen drinks from Long John Silvers and brownies. Dinner will be hamburgers!!!!!!!!! Sit down for this one! Dillon's today....Total before coupons...$79.58.....after coupons....-51 cents.....so, I had to buy a candy bar.grand total .03 cents.
Yesterday was day #6 of my grocery challenge!!! I think I will make it. However, I do have a slight change. I am not going to count when we get popcorn, my girls go with a friend somewhere and buy a snack, etc. That wasn't my intention. My intention was to lower my weekly grocery bill. So, I am going to add the $10 back in from the popcorn this week. Therefore, my total is $17.56. Last night I spent $19.00 at Dillon's. My new total is $36.56. I bought the following: bag of salad, 12 boxes of General Mills cereal, box of Cheese Nips, three 1/2 gallon cartons of ice cream, and a box of Hormel turkey. I saved 73% of my bill. For breakfast we had toast, cantaloupe or cereal. Lunch was turkey sandwiches. Dinner was salad, Italian shells and cheese, cheesy garlic bread, and cantaloupe.
