Am I the only person who turns grocery shopping into a game?
Not like a competitive game, but a fun game.
Here's how my grocery shopping typically goes. I make a list well ahead of time, set my budget, and I "win" the game if my total is at or below my budget and I get all of the items that I needed.
There may have been an occasion or more where I have danced and yelled in joy for winning the grocery game.
I'm sure the cashier's got a good laugh out of it.
So I decided to start a $50 grocery challenge and document to all of my readers. Yes, I said $50. For a family of 3. And no, we are not going to be starving.
Here's how it will work:
Each time I go grocery shopping over the month or so, I will shop at 3 different stores - Aldi's, Kroger's, and Walmart. I am going to spend as close to $50 as I can at each store. I will share my grocery list ahead of time, so that I can get the same items at each store. I'll make a new post each time I go to the store and I will share pictures of my haul and receipts for proof. If I use any coupons, I will also share that information. I'll determine how long the groceries were to last before it would be necessary to go shopping again (I always have food so I will assume as if I did not have any groceries). At the end of the challenge, I will do a comparison of the 3 stores.
Does all of this make sense? It does in my head but we can't always go off that, now can we?
I'll have the post up shortly of the items I will be buying for the challenge. The challenge is going to begin this week at...Kroger's!
I would love to hear about any grocery challenges that you have done. Comment below and let me know if you have or tell me how you keep grocery shopping fun.
