    Default My grocery challenge is $300 this month

    I had been doing really well on my groceries then, BAM, the prices started to climb. I am going to try to spend only $300 for my family this month. This includes all household products, everything for me, DH, DD#1 ( almost 21yrs.), DD#2 (18 years), and my ever growing 6 ft. 3in. 14 year old son. I really need to stop after work every Thursday at Aldi's which is 3 minutes from my job, also, I am going to start looking at deals at CVS pharmacy, and continue to go to the Dollar store. I haven't been shopping Walmart for awhile, so I am going to try to be more creative with my grocery budget.

    i got some great deals at cvs today.

    xmas paper - 75% off...90 ft of it......

    i dont think we could do 300/mth to include all household stuff to include TP, papertowel, clnrs, etc...

    good luck to you

    i did start to buy dollar store dishwasher liquid and use that in the extra wash container along w/ the regular one filled w/ cascade or sunlight. works just fine and saves some $$$.

    Don't forget coupons, stores that double and BOGO's. Dosen't Kroger and/or Meijer double?
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.
