Great Shopping Trip!! I love reading your blog and am in the 150 challenge with you this month. Thanks for the inspiration!! I’m doing good so far!!! Let’s kid this debt to the curb!!!!

Thanks for reading Rebecca! I was wanting a challenge that didn’t deplete my pantry and stock but did challenge me to live off a lower number – shopping more sales, getting better deals, etc. This is not easy but I’m having a blast doing it!
