To those who've been doing this challenge  all along, way to go! You've reached week 4 and your family hasn't starved yet. Your creativity has been stretched to the max, no doubt, but I hope that you have some excellent savings to show for your hard work.
To those who have joined us at some point during this month or have done any variation on the challenge, thank you for joining us! I'm sure that you've seen that even just a week or two of eating what you already have, or purposefully shopping less than usual, can make a huge difference and help you put extra dollars towards your larger grocery purchases, towards debt payments, or simply to help save up for something you'd like to buy.
I've been finding the challenge easier than I thought I would. Which means, we had a lot more food that I thought we did!
All that I've bought since the middle of May is fresh dairy and produce (and even less of those items than I would usually buy). It will be easy to finish up this challenge with the full $300 that I had planned to save, and with strawberry season around the corner and our meat supply starting to dwindle, the timing couldn't be better.
This is the last week to take advantage of the fact that all of my ebooks  are on sale. Use the coupon code CHALLENGE25 to take 25% off any single ebook, OR use code BUNDLE50 to buy all 3 of my ebooks at 50% off!
**Note that to use the bundle code, you need to choose the 3-book bundle option at the bottom of the page, rather than putting the 3 individual books in your cart.
Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, June 12th through to Friday, June 18th, there will be new giveaways up each day. Make sure you check in each day (or follow our Facebook page ) so that you don't miss any of them!
Has this challenge been difficult for you? How did you go about your meal planning and what types of meals have frequented your table?
And most importantly... did you get things cleaned out and meet your savings goals?
