October Grocery Challenge check-in
Fri, 10-30-2009 - 9:15pm

Not many people posted about participating in the October Grocery Challenge, but I know there are many of you who track your grocery spending. The challenge was to spend less than you spent in September. Was anyone able to do that?

I did spend less in October, $301.69, than I did in September, $338.17. I was hoping to spend even less than that. But I'm happy with what I spent. We are still well-stocked for food. Maybe I'll be able to spend less in November.

I spent way way less, but October was kind of a weird month since my DH was traveling in Europe for two weeks and I was there the last week too.

Our tally got messed up - DH did a bunch of off-list shopping and threw out receipts.
