    Exclamation Grocery challenge - Jan. 1 - 31st.

    I don't see this thread started anywhere so want to get it started now. For the month of January I want to spend no more than $350.00 on groceries and $75.00 on stockpiling.

    Anyone else?

    I am going to try and really tighten down for January. I've got quite a nice little stockpile going at the moment. We won't even discuss the out to eat out-of-handness. Anyway I'll be shooting for $200 another all inclusive month of groceries, household, HBA, pets, and out to eat.
    For 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 bottomless pits, 2 adults and company at least 3 times this coming month. I will be super excited if I can pull this one off.

    I have January's dinners all planned and almost everything should come out of my stockpile. I'll shoot for $200 so I can continue to stockpile as well as a OAM cooking planned for a long weekend. Crossing my fingers!

    Ok... this sounds like something we can do. I will include everything, food, cleaners and such. It will be for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. I would like to stay under $300 for shopping and $50 for stockpiling.

    I forgot to add, this is for 5 adults. Also I don't include pet supplies or eating out (which we seldom do anymore anyways).

    I feed 5 adults nightly, sometimes 7 depending on schedules and we have 3 cats.

    $150 grocery--this is food only and some of it ends up in the stockpile.
    $150 stockpile--this is food only and ends in the stockpile.

    So I am doing my usual $300 a month.

    I have a $75 pet stockpile and a $30 HBA stockpile fund seperate from my food money.

    I tend to make my own cleaners, soaps etc and have so much I am not even going to add it at this time

    This is where I really need to focus. I spend way to much money for groceries for a single person. I only eat out twice a month, and that's usually chinese, which is really cheap. I'm going to say $300 for everything but pet food/supplies and then really try to come in less than that. I have a small stockpile. I'm almost out of meet though, so I need to stock up on that.
