Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

emoticon I have not done so stellar, but I am making an improvement from previous months. I am already over budget by $27 and will probably need to go to the store again before the 1st. I might be able to get by...The improvement part comes in that even if I do go again, I can keep it below $400 which I usually go over every month as well.

Still have not bought anything for dinners etc. this month.
I've been using everything from my freezer and pantry !

So far I have spent over $100, which is not good considering how much of the month is left! I plan to use frozen soups and leftovers for lunches and to not buy any more meats as I am well stocked on those. I found a lot of sales recently!

My Challenge is to NOT grocery shop at all !!!
Except for milk and bread, fruit and dairy, like cheese, sour cream etc.
I have so much food in my freezers and pantry that there is really no need for veggies or meat !
Now if I can only NOT look at the ads...They will go on sale again next year !

This challenge is flexible, to meet everyone's needs who wants to participate. We will all work on sticking to our budgets, but what that means for you can be anything. Are you always over your food bill? Do you keep buying home goods you really can't afford? Whatever it is, we can all support each other here!

First, post what your challenge is. Then decide how to track that and post your progress here. So for example, some people like to post emoticons for each day, some like to check in weekly, or whatever works for you. I will get us started:

My challenge is to stay within my food budget of $300 this month. I will post on this weekly, as to how I did for that week. I already use budgeting software that tallies this for me, so I will just have to keep up with in-putting my receipts.
