My Grocery challenge…

There has been a buzz among the Thrifty/Couponing blogs about a grocery challenge where you challenge your family to spend only $100 on food for 1 month. This includes eating out and grocery shopping.

I think I’m participating, and was’t aware..

This is our fridge.
Current contents are: (not including condiments and long term fridge stuff i.e. powdered milk)
  • 3 tortillas
  • left over shredded pork taco meat
  • 1/2 a can of black olives
  • 2 cans of crescent rolls
  • The baby’s milk and a container of sweet potato baby food.
  • a bag of lettuce from the garden

That’s it… really…

Our fridge has probably looked like this for about a week now. Yet we’ve eaten a homemade dinner every night, and Aaron has eaten breakfast and lunch from home.

When I realized how bad of shape our fridge really was I sat down to make a grocery list and could only think of 3 things to put on it. 2 of which are not refrigerated. Eggs, Olive oil and cinnamon.

Not eating Dairy sure cuts down on your fridge contents…


  1. That looks about like my fridge. I just cleaned it out over the weekend. And yet, we've also eaten a home-cooked meal every night. How is that possible???

  2. My fridge is full, but with nothing to eat!! I need to take this challenge, because I probably end up spending that much a week. It's horrible…
