**Trim the Budget Challenge**


**Trim the Budget Challenge**

You never know what you are capable of unless you challenge yourself to something different. I have decided to not only challenge myself, but I want all of you to try it with me.

The Challenge: Take your monthly average grocery cost and cut it in half

For me, I will try not to spend more than $300 a month on food and eating out. This includes your weekly grocery shopping, eating out and household products.

How can you achieve this challenge? Try following a few of these steps:

* Buy what is on sale

* Try to have a coupon for as many items as you need

* Pay with cash. And only bring the dollar amount you want to spend. This will force you to pay attention to the prices

If I can do it, I know all of you can too.
