Just a reminder that there's only a week and a half left in the challenge (well, 12 days...)

Good luck!

I'm way over, but I'm still keeping track for some reason.

All I have to say is thank goodness this is a short month

I had to take $40 out of my grocery money to pay for prescriptions for my sick babies.

Oh Lord. I'm doing so horrible in the grocery challenge. I went over - but haven't filled in my latest purchases.

And, of course, this month, when I go over, our gas bill is $70 higher than last month. Curse my cold house!!!!!!!!!

In other news though - this challenge is awesome. Really opened my eyes to how much I spend at the grocery store. And the month isn't even over!!

I'm stoked, because I'm actually doing quite well. I have to update to reflect my last trip to the store a few days ago, but so far there've been some good deals. If it weren't for coupon shopping (matching to sales) I'd be way over by now.

I'm a big loser because I have already gone over my proposed budget!

I did too! You're not a loser--you just need to adjust for next month. ME TOO!

I was trying to spend $25 less than I usually do (which is about $450 a month). I'm still under $450, but I wanted to meet my goal. The main thing this time around is that DH is having his tonsils out and I had to buy some sherbet and ice cream and other soft things that I don't usually buy.

I have amazed myself this month. I paid a ton more attention to sales and my coupons, and am proving to myself I can really cut down my bills. I like this challenge - hope we do it again!
