I wanted to share with you that I have entered the All You Grocery Challenge. If you are not familiar with the All You Grocery Challenge it is a four week challenge to spend only $25 per person on your grocery budget hosted by All You Magazine. Now, as you know I have a family of 3 so for me that would be a total of $300 for the month in groceries. For the “average” family I think that would be a tight budget however for me, I am currently spending on average of $150 a month! So, taking the challenge may not have been as hard of a change for me as others.
With this being said, I am not going to increase my budget but I have made the decision to see if I can spend only $75.00 this month on groceries! It is going to be a challenge and one that I am not sure that I am going to be able to meet but I thought it would be a fun personal challenge for me! Now, if a triple or Mega comes along I doubt I will be able to keep my goal of spending only $75 this month but we will see 🙂
I decided to take some updated photos of my stockpile to let you see where my stockpile was before the challenge. I did not prepare for the challenge at all! In fact, I want you to know that I took the month of May off and did not grocery shop at all except for perishables. I made only major 1 trip in June due to our vacation, my hubbies travel schedule and visiting family. So here it is! What do you think? Can we make it?Yum
