$200 Grocery Challenge

Happy New Year Savvy Shoppers! It is the time of year again where we take a look at our lives and decide what needs to change, what has to change and dream about being a size 6 by the end of the year (well, at least that's what I dream about!)

For my family, we are taking a hard look at our family budget and trying to cut extra unneeded expenses. We are currently renting a home and would like to have ALL our credit card debt paid off so we can start saving money to put down on a house next year. Not only are we going to do all this, but I am going to write about it in the next year as well and let you know how our financial goals are coming along. Even though I am a savvy shopper, cut coupons, teach coupon classes and try to stick to a budget when we go grocery shopping, the honest truth is that I definitely don't stick to it like I should and we definitely spend WAY TOO MUCH on groceries a month!

So, that is why I am starting the $200 Grocery Challenge. I will only have $200 dollars for the whole month to buy our food needs. If we can buy diapers, contact stuff, health items with that too, great, but I am not going to count it towards our budget, at least in the beginning. This is strictly grocery/food items. My family is also starting a healthier lifestyle this year and we plan on buying lots of fruits and vegetables, which can make the grocery bill more expensive, but I KNOW I can do it! We are also looking into organic/grass-fed beef and farm raised chicken eggs. This is still being researched and figured out and I will write more about that another day and in another post!

I will take pictures of my shopping trips and break the cost down to you as well as the coupons I used so that you can score the same deals when you go shopping! I am looking forward to staying accountable and prove that saving money doesn't mean you can't live a full and healthy life!

Look for my first shopping trip soon! Please comment with your own financial goals this year, your own shopping budgets and any "deals and steals" you find along the way!

One Day Only-Michaels 25% off ENTIRE Purchase

Don't miss this unbelievable one day deal at Michaels. Bring in this coupon on New Years Day for 25% off your Entire Regular Price Purchase!

Payless Coupon-15% Off!

Go here to print a coupon or 15% off your purchase at Payless now through January 30th. This coupon is available for in-store or online shopping!

Ready-to-eat cereals is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child's diet today.

What A Year It's Been...On To The Next!!!

2009 has been a year I will never forget! I started with this crazy idea of starting a blog and sharing my information and know-how with others and I have been overwhelmed and amazed at the response. I was chosen as a Deal Pro and got to go to San Francisco for their First Ever Save Up Event! I have a huge following on Facebook and continue to gain readers on my blog everyday! 2009 has taught me many lessons and I am using what I have learned and moving forward full speed ahead. I have lots of new and exciting things planned for 2010 and I hope you follow me on the next leg of my adventure to living a full but frugal lifestyle.
I am going to slow down over the next several days and spend lots of quality time with my family, as that is what matters most over the holidays. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All I Want For Christmas...

A Quick Favor To Ask All My Readers:

If you have enjoyed my blog over the past several months, please take 5-10 minutes out of your time and become a follower of my blog over your holiday break. This will get me more PR, which will mean more awesome giveaways and promotions for you! I have poured my heart and soul into this blog and will continue to do so as long as I am blessed and given the chance. I have an amazing following on Facebook and need to get that same following on my blog! I know it may take a few steps, but it really isn't too tough! Lots of new and exciting things are going to be happening here. I am working on a new design layout and new features starting next year such as the $200 Grocery Challenge, Weekly Meal Deals, and more! As much as I love this blog, it does take time and effort. The more you interact with this blog, become a follower, invite your friends to do the same, and leave comments on my posts, the more motivation it gives me to continue!!!! Sometimes I feel like I am talking to myself :) Anyway, if you have the time, I would greatly appreciate the support of my blog and myself!
