Grocery Challenge Week 4 (1/23 – 1/29)

by Gina on January 31, 2011

Goal: $400 a month for groceries, HBA, Dog Food, and Baby Formula

We completed the month of January right at our goal! $400 covered us just fine, and my husband and I are inspired to continue on in February with similar results. This even covered DH’s steak craving, 3 containers of formula ($60+ each), and a $20 bag of dog food! Hopefully as we get used to things we’ll be able to cut back even more. For now I think $400 is a good number, and certainly better than we were doing!

Snacks: $5.76

Total: $400
Amount Remaining for January: $0.00

Thanks, Sharon!

I would like to give a HUGE shout out to Sharon of Good, True & Beautiful for safely moving my baby blog from Blogger to WordPress! I am trying to get the lay of the land on this new platform after being so used to how things worked in Blogger, but I am much happier knowing that my site is self-hosted and much more secure. If anyone is interested in moving from Blogger to WordPress, feel free to contact Sharon! You can check out her site for more details. She has been a pleasure to work with!
