    Default Grocery Challenge - April

    Well, unbelieveably, April is right around the corner. I was successful with $130 for March and am going to keep my goal at that for April and not bring it down $10 more as I usually do when I meet the goal. My concern is that I am going through my stockpile and am also now out of chicken, so this will be a stocking up month for me. If I keep it under $120, then that's a bonus thrill for me and I'll move it down to $110 for May. But, realistically, I'm keeping it at $130.

    I don't know if I was successful in March or not. So many things have happened this month, that I lost track of my expenses. But, I'm ready to jump back on the wagon, and try it again.

    My goal: $250

    Looks like I should make my goal for March.

    Since we are going to be trying real hard to pay off our credit card, I'm going to lower my goal just a bit.

    For April my goal will be 175$.

    I'm going to go up some for April because I'm trying to buy a lot more fresh veggies, fresh fruits, and some organic dairy products; so I'll try for $350.

    Goal: $350

    I did a restocking of major necessities today.

    I spent $24.27 and got:

    1 Jumbo pack Pampers Cruisers
    1 Huggies 80ct. wipes
    2 15oz. Wheaties
    2 15oz. Corn Pops
    1 Romaine Lettuce
    1 Large Cellery bunch
    4 lbs Navel Oranges
    2 Gallons Whole Milk
    2 2.5oz Honey Turkey Slices
    1 8oz. Sliced Swiss Cheese
    1 Healthy Choice Mint N Chip Ice cream 1.75 quart size
    1 Speed Stick 24/7 Deodarant
    2 packs Oreo Double Stufft cookies
    1 24 pack Coca Cola (not even a great price but we really needed it)

    I had a 5$ off 50$ coupon which I handed them first before I gave them my other coupons.

    My before card/coupons total was 69.77, so I saved about 50$ tonight

    I also got a raincheck on some cheese. I am just so glad that I'm getting better at remembering that kind of thing

    So, dh wanted to buy some clam sauce for the pasta last night. I was against it, but he's been doing so well with his diet, that I decided to bite my tongue and not only let him do a mid-week shop (totally against the rules) but also let him buy an item that I didn't have a coupon for. However, I made him do the shop for next week while he was out, so I guess I saved myself a trip on Sunday! (I'll probably still go because I remembered a few things that we need this morning.) He did pretty well.

    Total: $15.98
    Goal: $130
