Grocery Budget Bootcamp Update #4

I'm so excited to announce that for the month of July I kept my new grocery budget goal! This is the 3rd month in a row I've been able to keep that new budget. My new grocery budget goal I set is $600 per month for our family of 3.

I’m not really one to shop for expensive shoes, designer clothes or handbags, so I wouldn’t consider my spending outrageous. BUT I am learning that what I’m spending on grocery and household items could be reduced by thousands every year. I don’t know about you, but saving thousands a year can really help my family’s budget! … Read MoreGrocery Budget Bootcamp Update #1
