Personal Grocery Challenge – Week 1 Report

I’m happy to say that I’m not doing to bad so far. My total for the month so far sits at $107.44. I was hoping for it to be a little lower, but I ended up sick last week and bought extra orange juice to drink, plus we had VBS and we were asked to bring in something to help feed the volunteers, so I picked up a few things there that I normally would not need. Thankfully, we’re doing well on everything else and should only need milk this week.

I’m making a batch of bread today, as well as some rolls. My menu is planned for the week (except for 1 day and I just could not think of anything – but I will). I got to carry over a lot of my meal plan from last week to this week since they did feed the volunteers last week. That was nice. I was dreading coming home late and still having to fix supper, and I refused to eat out every night.

I am so thankful that God has provided us with so much. I cannot imagine how we could make ends meet sometimes if it wasn’t for the daily guidance that He provides. He is truly awesome.

Onto a new week and a continuation of my grocery budget challenge for June! Remember, my goal is to spend $300 for the 5 of us for the entire month.
