So I wanted to do a quick update on my July pantry challenge. My goal for this month was to try and eat from what we had and to not spend over $50.00 total for groceries. So far, we’re right on track. I’m about to cook my whole chicken that I will be getting 4 meals plus lots of stock from. Do you guys know how to do that? If not, be sure to comment and let me know so that I can document it and show you! It’s great and such a money saver!
Anyhow, I did do a grocery run mid-week to HEB. Now I’m really new to shopping HEB but I’m loving it! I was able to save 57% on REAL food! I know that a lot of people think that couponing can only net you junk food but no way! This was honest to goodness healthy food that included milk! If you’re a new couponer, 57% might not seem like a lot to you, but trust me..on food alone? It’s HUGE. You can almost always save 70%+ on non-food items, but groceries are hard to save on.
So we’re 1 week or so into the challenge and we’re on track!
