$5000 Goal

2009 is over!  I spent $4,821 on Groceries.  I saved over $5,391 by shopping store sales and using coupons.  Join me in 2010 to see if I can stay under $5,000 while doing Weight Watchers. 

I started a goal 1/1/09 to see if I can spend less than $100 a week on groceries. Less than $100 a week is roughly $5,000 a year. Here's how I did:

Monthly Goal: $416
2009 Average Month: $401.75

Yearly Goal: $5,000
2009 Spending: $4,821

Weekly Goal: $96.15
2009 Weekly Average: $92.71

This includes all disposables! Food, H&B, household cleaners, baby junk, cat junk, etc. It does not include restaurants, take-out, clothing, home improvement stuff, etc. Just typical things you'd buy at a grocery or drug store.
