Can someone explain the grocery challenge to me? I can't figure out exactly what it is or how people win...

you win by being the one that has the total farthest away from your budget

Its really more about challenging yourself and seeing how well you can do

It's where you set up your monthly budget (mine is for food, toiletries, paper products, etc--everything I buy on a regular basis to keep the house 'going'), and you keep track of all your spending/saving. It's really not a competition with the rest of us, it's a challenge for you to keep yourself in your own budget--you're accountable to yourself.

I do give the "winner" (the person who stays most within their budget) a blinkie.

We love you, Liz, that's how. We are all familiar with psychobabble--we're all guilty.

I may be farthest from budget this month... but in the wrong direction!!

My problem is that I am trying to work and post at the same time, so most times my mind is running in 15 different directions.

I really am not as dumb as I sound most of the time

Love you too Kim
