All You Grocery Challenge - Final Comments
I enjoyed doing this challenge this past month. I found it wasn't as stressful staying in a budget when we had 25 dollars each per week. We ate well and I stockpiled as sales came up. I didn't change my shopping habits. I found that we really don't let food go to waste. I think that is one thing we do best. If there are leftovers, we have them the next day or freeze them for later. I also try to use what we have before it goes to waste, so it is important to have flexibility in the menu to change days or meals depending on what needs to be used first in the fridge. We also substituted ingredients frequently so we could use what we had on hand. I enjoyed doing this challenge with others and hearing their ideas and experiences.
