You can go HERE and HERE to see how I've been doing thusfar or just to find out what the heck this post is about=)
I always forget to mention that I go to CVS every week, but I hardly ever get edible groceries or have to pay much OOP. So far nothing has counted there.
I have to start this off by rationalizing a little bit. While I am trying to stick to this challenge, I refuse to let my family starve. I have been trying to cook the same kinds of meals I would cook otherwise. PLUS, we have had company every weekend plus a few more days this month, not to mention the cookout and birthday party. Okay, I feel better getting that off my chest=) That is another thing, I don't want to deny friends, family or our "Open House" policy just to meet the challenge.
All that being said, I went out to the grocery store and spent a whopping $20.01 for the week.
I SAVED $20.28 today (I keep forgetting to post my savings which are almost always the same as the total spent!)
