Grocery Challenge – Part 2

Have you been saving food receipts?  Good for you!

I tallied up my January grocery bill and it was exactly half of what my December bill was.  Came to the grand total of $232!  Not bad for feeding a family of 4 for a month.  And, no, I didn’t cheat by buying more fast food.  We do eat some fast food, but no more than normal.  So far, at this point, we’ve spent about $150 for this month…possibly a little more because Jason did some shopping and I haven’t seen the latest receipt yet.

Will check back at the end of the month…

    Hey! I’m doing your grocery challenge, and also keeping up with how much we spend eating out. I’m only at $120 on groceries so far! Not sure how……but Billy does the grocery shopping and he spends less than I do =)

      Yay! That’s about where we are, too. Eating @ restaurants will suck you dry faster than you know. I’ve been more cautious this month than the past few. I admit to going to a restaurant about once a week, and really even that is too much. Everytime we go out to eat, it ends up being 25-30 dollars, which is pretty ludicrous when you tally it at the end of the month. :0)
