Little Grocery Challenge

I'm challenging myself to only spend $100 on groceries and other household items until December 15.  We need to eat down our pantry and freezer anyway.  We will be doing some Christmas baking but I have the ingredients for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.   If I make one more kind, I will likely call it good.  We don't need 15 different kinds of Christmas goodies.

I booked our Mexico hotel today.  I got a 5 star all-inclusive hotel for $1218 for 5 days.  Since we used credit card points to book our airfare, this is our only cost thus far for our 5 day Mexico trip.  I'm so excited!!!

Anybody want to join me on a little grocery challenge?


  1. Ooh, I'm in! We've been eating down our freezer and pantry lately, and I'm so excited at how organized my freezer seems with the extra space. Even counting $$$ baby pouches, I'm going to aim for less than $100 for the next two weeks, too!

  2. I am all in with the 100 until the 15th. Since my family does not start drifting in until the 17th this will give me a little added cushion when the house fills up.

  3. Best of luck with your challenge but I am out. I've already spent over $100 this month on groceries as the local grocery chain had some awesome deals. lolz
    I may do something like this for Jan. as we attempt to eat down what is here when our youngest is home from college.

  4. I'm in! So far: nothing spent and I have meal planned up until next Sunday with what we have. Just need to do a small trip for milk, veggies, etc :) Goodluck!

  5. Thanks for sharing in detail. Your blog is an inspiration! Apart of really useful tips, it's just really ! This post will be effectively Just about everything looks good displayed.
