Week 5 Of Our 10 Week Grocery Budget Challenge

 

 

We have completed WEEK 5 of our 10 Week Grocery Budget [1] Challenge! We are HALF WAY DONE! If you’d like to learn more about this challenge, go HERE [2]!

 

***Here’s the secret to staying in your budget, menu plan based on what you already own and what is on sale. This way you don’t buy anything that isn’t on sale. Hope that helps!

 

My NEW budget for this challenge is $30 per week, and I WENT OVER! Yes it’s true, here’s the breakdown of what I spent and saved:

 

NEW Budget: $30 per week + $3 roll over from last week

Total Spent: $33.92 (went over by $.92), Saved: at least $52.10

 

Spent $7.00 at 99 Cent Store, see shopping trip HERE [3]

Spent $2.20 at Vons, bought (6) Ocean Spray Juice for FREE + bought grapes

Spent $13.81 at WinCo, bought frozen veggies, quinoa, apples, coleslaw, kale, bananas

Spent $10.91 at Albertsons, pictured above
