I read about this challenge on Dawn's blog and I saw on Pinterest that Tammy is doing it too , but I am not sure if she is going to blog about hers.
We have big goals for 2013- I will elaborate more about them in another post. Our politicians may not realize it, but I know that big goals usually require both spending cuts and adding revenue. We've had a bit of a revenue increase and I plan on making a big difference by cutting spending too.
I was already thinking about doing this but the post on Good Cheap Eats encouraged me to commit to it and to blog about it.
We have plenty of meat in the freezer- probably an easy 3 months worth, maybe more.
The pantry is full.
We've got plenty of non-food essentials like health and beauty things, things to clean with and paper goods.
We have some fresh stuff but we will eat through it before the end of the month.
So my plan is to mostly use things at home, buying only needed fresh goods or things that we truly need.
Other purchases will only be if a low sale of the year price comes along.
I hope to spend $100-$200 or less, instead of the usual $600.
how about you? are you stocked up enough to try a challenge like this one?
