Today's $10.00 challenge didn't get me as many items as usual, however some these can be big ticket items, especially the cat food and cleaning products. The above items cost a total of $9.61. For the 21 items that averages out to just under $.45 cents a piece. I'd like to do better, but as I said with two bags of cat food and five cleaning products as well as shampoo I really can't complain. Plus I do have a $1.00 rebate on the laundry soap which makes it a little better. Now if I can get rid of the cats, stop cleaning my house, and shave the family's heads . . . just think how far I could stretch a buck. Don't worry I don't think any of those things will be happening soon.
I have had a few friends ask for some tips on stretching their grocery budget, so I am working on putting together a list of hints and websites. So check back if you too would like to know to cut your grocery bill a little.
