Part of our No/Low Spend January challenge has been to cut our grocery bill down to $50 a week. This week we did manage to do it again. I will tell you a little secret though we've also grocery shopped for next week ha ha! Our plan is to not even enter a grocery store at all next week and I'll tell you that total then.
