June has been great to me! I have spent -$18.17, and saved $1287.35. How? rebates, rebates, rebates. and cashback sites. Good thing since we are planning a mini-vaca next month, and my hubby and I are both taking classes in the Fall.
We are participating in the AllYou Magazine's Grocery Challenge. It starts Sunday, June 20. Basically, we can spend $25/person/week on food, but my aim is to spend far less than that. What worked for me last year during the Challenge was to blog daily/weekly our meals and spending. I'll try to do the same this go-round, and am now saying 'farewell' to go work on an Excel Worksheet to help me track our spending during the challenge.
