The grocery challenge… challenge!!

Ok, so I committed to the grocery challenge of $150 for the month of October on all things including: food, sundries, pet food/supplies, etc.  My intention was $25/pp.

However, we just acquired a new family member (for a couple of months at this point)… it is my intention to still stick with the $150 total for the month.  I “may” have to increase that amount by a bit, but my goal is to maintain it at $150 (especially since I don’t have to do lunches for this little guy during the week, he gets subsidized school lunches).

The best laid plans, always change!
