Frugal Living: $200/ Month Grocery Challenge

GLOSSette here!!! One of the easiest ways to cut down on sending is to cut down the cost of eating. I find that eating “eats” into your budget a lot. I was thinking in terms of clothing the other day. Even if I just spent 5 bucks or even 10 bucks on a shirt… if it lasts me for 5 years (lets say), each year doesn’t cost me much. I know its essential to eat and if you eat with proper nutrition you are less likely to have health problems which end up costing you a lot of money. I’m just talking in general terms. I am not a nutritionist nor is this post about nutrition. But the cost of a $5 meal cannot last you for 5 years unlike your shirt.

I have been following Kimberlee, the mother and head of, and very inspired by her blog posts to eat for less. She has a family of 6 living on $28,000 a year with a budget of $100/ week for food. She has growing teenagers and even boys so they eat quite a bit. If they can do it, I can too. We will start this month of June to try to monitor our grocery spendings. Come along and join us in this journey.

Stayed tuned (either here or on my Youtube channel) as I will be talking about different ways to assist you in your groceries including meal planning.

  1. With coupons and discount cards I spend bout $175 a month on groceries for the two of us. I find that really good since how I have a grown active teenager in the home.

      Thats amazing. Everything cost way more here. Imagine Seattle and even then we cost more. So we are trying. Last month without trying we made it around $250.
