What is the Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge? This January we, along with our other co-hosts, will challenge ourselves by eating from our pantries and stockpiles. This is not a “no spend” month, this is a “make do with what you have on hand and spend as little as possible” month. Since everybody’s goals are different and will depend on their own household needs, we can each set our own rules. The point is to start off the new year by boosting our budgets using what we already have!
Our overall goal for this pantry challenge is to “boost our budget” by spending no more than $200 this month on grocery and expenses from eating out in January.
This past week, we continued to eat from our pantry, making our favorite meals, including spaghetti, 3-packet pot roast, and pizza. However, we went a little over budget, spending $75 on groceries, stocking up on supplies for an impending snow storm (which came and went). We hope that with our additional purchases this past week that we’ll still be on track for our goals for the month. We have spent approximately $175 on groceries this month so far for our family of six. What are your goals for the pantry challenge this week?
We’re also giving away a $25 Coupon Clutch gift certificate each week to one participant who either leaves a link to a challenge update post. Last week’s winner is Stacy from Adventures in Coupons. Will you join us?
