    Default June Grocery Challenge

    Hope it's ok if I start this one.?
    This month I plan to spend no more than $50 a week for groceries. Last month I started out good, but then forgot to keep track...I am hoping to do better tracking this time.

    I did better last month and was able to stay under the $400 for actual groceries because of all the free gift cards when paying for rx transfers. If I add in the cost of the rxs than I went over by $6. Still pretty good considering how I've been doing. I'm going to try again for $400 for the 4 of us.

    Ok...today was grocery day...Here's what I did. $129.00....SO - I'm going to try not to go to the store again for 2 weeks. I think I might be able to. There was a sell on bacon, (got several packages for freezer), and had to get some meds. That's what caused it to be high...but that's ok...I'll see if I can go two weeks....

    ~I'm in for $200 this month, just food for our family of four. I spent a bit high last month on special birthday foods for DH and stocking up on meat.
    We just got back from vacation so we haven't spent anything yet. ~

    I have a problem...and need suggestions. I am going to need to make some sort of sandwiches and other finger foods for next Saturday for a church function. I don't want to have to buy anything from the store as I am trying to go two weeks before buying groceries.

    I have on hand....pbj...bologna...and not a whole lot more. Some ladies at church are making ham salad sandwiches, and tuna salad sandwiches....would it be ok to make pbj ? Or should I use bologna?

    I can make some tea to take for drinks, but I don't know what else to take....any suggestions?
