Hello Sophisticated Spenders!
Who says week 39 of the 52 week year is too late to start a new challenge.
For all of you people who are waiting on January 1st to make change I challenge you to start RIGHT NOW!!!!!!
I totally rocked the first week of the $26 Grocery Challenge.
Here’s what I’ve got to share:
Store: I went to Giant Food Store twice.
Coupons: There was a grand opening for a Giant in my area so I had extra coupons-$8 in coupons.
Total Spent: I spent $31 on groceries.
Under or Over: I went Over! (Darn cupcakes)
Here’s what I bought:
-Whole Organic Chicken
Reflections: I went over by $5 because I was attacked by a huge sugar rush and found myself at Giant buying the items to make cupcakes. But I rocked it! On day 1 I made Salmon. I also ate lots of chips and guacamole. On day 3 I made the oven roasted (organic) chicken. I ate that and a few other items from my freezer. I went to happy hour twice (not groceries so not included in grocery budget). I even shared my chicken with a few friends and coworkers.
I’m looking forward to continuing his challenge because I let too much food make it’s way to the trash and I don’t plan on letting that happen any time soon!
Did you participate this week? How did it go? What tweaks did you make?
