As for the grocery challenge, upon arrival at my new abode I bought $17.21 of groceries. This brings my month total to:
So I definitely came in under budget. I was also able to cook for 3 different people over the month :D
Unfortunately, I ate out more (much much) more than my allotted $20/week. I blame this partially on goodbye parties and partially on moving/getting to know new people.
I definitely have a new appreciation for meat and limiting it's use. I definitely still LOVE LOVE LOVE meat but will be using it much more sparingly now.
Have a great weekend!
