$100 Grocery Challenge

April has come and gone, so let's see if we made our $100 grocery challenge this month...


Final shopping total - $360.88
OOP - $97.77
Saved -$263.11 (about 73%)

April 2010 totals:

Final shopping total - $221.41
OOP - $87.10
Saved - $134.31 (about 61%)

Also, remember I am now doing a Walgreens/Rite Aid challenge, basically just wanting to make enough money throughout the month doing miscellaneous things to make up for any purchases I make at drug stores.

In April, I spent $35.50.

I made $41.09 through Ebay. (I only listed about six items this month... it was a busy month!)
I made $138.13 in checks from rebates, mystery shopping and online surveys.
I sold enough clothes at a local secondhand shop to make $40.44!

So technically, I didn't pay anything for any of my drug store purchases! We only ate out one time, at Papa Johns, when they had a 50% off coupon. We got two medium pizzas for $7.50. Woot woot!

How did you do in March?
