    Default December 2009 $25 Grocery Challenge

    There has been interest in the 2008 challenge thread that some would like to have this challenge again this year.

    If so Sara can we make this a sticky please

    The challenge is to spend $25 per week per person or If you have a well stocked pantry and freezer you can lower your total.

    This is to help save money and use up what you have in your pantry and freezer and start fresh in the new year.

    If you want to join just post what your total per family member will be.

    I am going to do $40 per week and there are 4 of us in the household. So $10 per person per week.

    I have a very well stocked freezer and pantry. So will mainly be buying dairy and produce.

    I'm in! I'm in for $20 per person (4) or $80 a week. I'd go a bit lower but all the candy making is expensive!

    If you want to include her that is up to you.
    This is more of a personal challenge for everyone to lower there grocery bill and use up what you have in the freezer/pantry. You may need to get creative with your meals to use up all of the odd things lingering in the back of the pantry or freezer.

    It starts December 1st

    Glad to have you aboard!

    I'm in. I have 2 in my family (my dad eats my produce though, ugh! LOL!) so $50. I would love to get lower than this. $75 is my budget ($300 a month) so this is going to be a wonderful challenge for me!
