    Default My Two Week $15/day challenge

    We're short money for this pay period. Groceries are our big cost with a family of seven on special diets. I'm challenging myself to spend no more than $15/day on food until my husband gets paid again. I think my hubby will spend about $60 on groceries for this pay period as well. This may sound like a lot to some of you with very tight budgets, but I do a lot to get our budget down (garden, can, freeze, use cold storage, have a pantry, etc.).his is a big thing for me as I find it very easy to overspend especially when I see a "good deal".

    Jan 16 14.98 (Save Easy, groceries)
    Jan. 17 15.00 (Olde MacKenzie Fame, home delivered free range eggs)

    Wow.. sorry you're in this predicament. $15/day to feed a family of 7 is not much at all. There are some great threads running rampant that help with low cost meals if youpoke around a bit.

    Like mauimagic said.. we'll be cheering you on! go girl!

    Also interesting in hearing how you do... Good luck with your challenge.
    In addition to how much you are spending each day - can you share with us what you are actually eating????
