    How does it work? I am new to this site and I LOVE it. My husband said I need a 12 step program for it I am so addicted already. Lol. I am very interested in saving money at the grocery store. I am getting more frugal by the day and I love it.

    You just pick a monthly budget amount for groceries and try to stay in it. Previous challenges some member have written what they bought at the store.

    The site is terrific isn't it! It's so nice you jumped right in!

    OKay for July my grocery budget is going to be 375 for 4 people and 3 cats. Eventually I want to get it down even farther but I am starting my stockpile so part of my budget is adding to the stockpile. That also includes all toiletries , paper products etc.

    Ok my goal for the month is £160 Not too sure what that equates to in $$$ but it's how I shop, and how I keep track that counts The £160 is for 2 people only, all inclusive, including bits and pieces for an upcoming wedding barbeque.

    Thanks for starting the challenge thread! My challenge starts now

    I'm going to go with $350 for the month. This includes a week at the beach for our vacation. We always buy tons of food because we go with the extended family, so it's always more than just the 5 of us that we are feeding. This includes all food, HBA's, paper products, etc.
