OK. In my recent post, "How LOW can we GO???", I stated that my new personal goal is to spend just $200/mo. (~$50/week) on groceries for our family of five. So, to help keep me on track, I've set up a "Monthly Grocery Tally", which you'll see on the right hand side of the blog. The tally will include amounts spent and saved as well as my remaining monthly balance. I'll provide links to any related "shopping trip" posts there as well.
"Groceries" will include basically all items that could be purchased in a grocery store: food, toilet paper, kleenex, shampoo, razors, laundry & cleaning supplies, etc. (tax included).
To be honest, I'm really not so sure I'm going to make it! This $200 set point is quite a squeeze for us...so, we'll see. It's likely we'll over-shoot a bit. Any words of encouragement (in the comment section below this post and/or others) would be soooo very much appreciated! :-) Donna.
