$100 Challenge: The First 3 Days

I have to say this challenge is going better than the last one. I went into this feeling more confident about meal planning and tried to make meals somewhat basic. This challenge is reminding me that I should probably try to reduce our grocery bill.  The last time around, we maintained a $125 weekly budget for about one month afterwards. That felt great!

Why isn't our $650 food budget less? When grocery shopping, I tend to go back to buying a lot of organic produce/products. If you're not a vegan, don't feel like you have to buy organic food.  Do what works best for you and your budget.
