I just finished the ALL YOU GROCERY Challenge $172.72 under budget! Yeah!
Saving money has become a way of life for me and my family. I once joked with my husband that I would pay for our children's college tutition with the money I save. As time moves on, I find that I get more and more frugal... it's almost like a game and it's fun!
Our budget for the month was $400 and we spent $227.28. We only counted groceries, but even with counting health and beauty aids, we would have had the same outcome. I get all of my health and beauty aids at the drugstore for free or for tax only.
Here is a recap of tips to help you spend less a the grocery store.
ALL YOU has some great recipes and tips for saving money. I also learned a lot from the ALL YOU blog. A few of my favorite tips from the ALL YOU Blog:
Ask your butcher to call you when they have meat that will be expiring soon. According to a fellow blogger, you can get meat at 75 % off. It will expire soon, so you just bring it home and freeze it!
Write the date of expiration on your stockpile items with a sharpie marker, so that you will be reminded to use it before it expires.
Check the clearance shelves
Thanks ALL YOU for the great challenge! I'm always interested in learning new ways to save!
