How did you do in the June Grocery Challenge? What percentage of your grocery total was spent on snacks? Anything you could do differently to reduce that if it was high? If your percentage was low, please share your snack strategies!


My snack percentage was high for June--oops!!! Almost 30% of my grocery total was spent on snacks. I know that it would be high, but it was not a typical month for snack spending for a couple of reasons.....


1. Going to 2 Cardinal ballgames in June. We are so fortunate that Busch Stadium allows you to bring in snacks and drinks, with a few guidelines. I spent about $22 on things that we took to the ballgames. Increased my snack total, but not as much as if we'd bought things at overpriced concession stands at the stadium! We would have easily
