Aw, shucks ...

The grocery challenges are rocking my socks. I'm saving way more money than I ever thought I would. Until the rather recent past I was not what one would call 'domestically skilled' at all. You were such an inspiration, I just couldn't help myself. And! I already posted about it on Financial Planning, but being frugal (and that's mostly groceries/coupons) has helped me pay an extra $4900 off my debt since January of this year.

Ok ... who's going to beat me in May?
