    Default Pammy grocery challenge

    Along the lines of the gas challenge to myself, also started a grocery challenge. Handy little calendar on my phone, just input on the date I bought groceries, amount, and going to see how long I can last on it.

    For the record, I LOATHE grocery shopping and have the tendency to go long stretches between shopping. In as much, I haven't been catching the great deals on sales like I used to. And really can't anymore due to no pantry or deep freezer or the space in this little house for either. So, with that in mind, I'm armed with only one side-by-side sized freezer and 5 cabinets in which to store food and spices. So here goes, let the bashing begin lol....




    Date: May 4th, 2013
    Scene of the crime: local United Supermarket
    Money spent: $215
    Number of people to feed: 1 and occasionally a guest (daughter shows up a lot, friends, etc... I like to cook for them)
    Showdown: the amount of time before a big shopping expedition is needed. *





    *there will be need for fresh produce and bread type of purchases, will add the amount spent accordingly.

    LLLETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I never thought of inputting the data onto my phone calendar. Great idea!

    I didn't either until I started putting my work schedule in there, then any appointments... even womanly times... then the day was filling up my car was bored waiting on the pump and the light bulb went off. It was a duh moment lol. But now makes perfect sense. Glad you can use it.

    Good luck Pammy! That is a brillant idea inputting it into your phone. I hadn't thought of that and it makes perfect sense as I almost always have my phone with me.

    I love my phone...I track almost everything in there - spending by payment method is my fave so there's no surprise bills at the end of the month.

    Great idea!
    I too despise grocery shopping and go long stretches before I'll drag myself in there. I go more for pet food than myself. Lol
