The winner of the 10 Week Grocery Challenge “Slash Your Budget By $20 Per Week” Winner is….. ANNA! I am so excited how far you came in this challenge. I know many of you were pushed to find good deals and you did! I also had a hard time spending only $30 per week for all our groceries, but now we know it is possible!

 

This is a great challenge during the summer, especially when the power bill is so much with the heat. Also, if you’re trying to save money for Christmas, you could take the challenge yourself!
