We hope you will join us! Set a goal today and get on the path to taking control of your grocery budget!

Here is how some of the fabs are doing…

 

Monica: Feeding a family of 4

Monthly grocery budget: $150

Spending this week: $76.54
Savings this week: $67.75

Spending for November: $76.54
Savings for November:  $67.75

Year to date spending: $1,308.86
Year to date savings: $2,226.37

I did lot’s of shopping this week. I went to Fred Meyer, Albertsons, Costco and Ridley’s. I do not usually shop at Ridley’s because it is not near my house. But we went to McCall for the weekend so I could not pass up on the deals at the Ridleys in McCall. I was $50 under budget last month, so I am giving myself permission to spend a little more this month if I need to.

Becky: Feeding a family of 3

Monthly grocery budget: $200

Spending this week: $3.73
Savings this week: $32.56

Spending for November: $3.73
Savings for November:  $32.56

Year to date spending: $1993.36
Year to date savings: $3857.93

Because I stocked up last week, I didn’t have much to buy this week!
