    Default March Grocery Challenge

    February went well for me, even though I nearly went over on the grocery challenge.

    I'm in for $400 again. (includes pet, household, hba etc)

    What is everyone else in for?

    I went over by about $20 this month, which isn't too bad considering. It was still under what I was any month last year.

    I am going to shoot for $400 this month for everything - baby, pet and household included. I might actually have to buy diapers for the first time for DS (5 mos old). And, DS is being baptised this month so will have to buy food for that gathering.

    I'm sticking to my $200 a month budget for groceries again this month. This number really seems to be working out.

    For the first time, EVER, I'll be in for a grocery budget. I was thinking about $250, including groceries and baby needs (formula ), as well as eating out. DH has to buy his own beer, that stuff is too expensive for my little budget :LOL:. I'm trying to cook up as much up front and freeze it and buy some inexpensive frozen meals we love. Can't wait to strech the dollar this month!!

    I'm in this month.
    It has been 3 months since I done this challenge.

    I'm in for $150 (Inlcudes food for 2 adults, households & baby products too)
    I already got enough formulas to last me a little over a month, so don't have to buy those. But in April, I might have to spend more.

    Default I'm trying for

    $300 but we'll have to see. I think I have as good a chance as ever, and I'm more motivated than I have been in a while.

    I am going to go again for $200.00, but I have a different strategy. I am going bi- weekly, not monthly.I will have my first shop for March tomorrow as we are low on everything.

    Blew it for February but not as badly as I did in December and January. Getting closer so I am taking it as a good sign and sticking with the same goal - $325

    I'm sticking to my $400 a month budget, even though I've been under for the past 2 months. The price of milk has gone up, and I don't have any left, and I wouldn't be surprised if the stores put the price of everything up because of the gas shortage.
