Give Me Back My Five Bucks

February Food Challenge

I’m bringing the monthly challenge back. Maybe not for good, but I think it’d be an interesting experiment, and a really good way to spice up personal finance.

This month’s challenge is to set a monthly food budget for yourself (and your family, if applicable), and stick to it! If you would like to join me in my challenge, please leave a comment and indicate how much your budget is for.

This food budget can include just your groceries, or just your dining out budget, or both of them combined. My budget of $200/month is for both of them combined, because I like the flexibility.

And for those who weren’t with me last year when I did these challenges, this challenge will last from February 1-28th. And on Fridays I’ll put up a Weekly Recap post, where you can post a comment about how you’re doing so far. Previously, I’d take these comments and add them to my post, but I won’t do that this year because it was just way too much work. But other than that, it’ll be exactly the same as last year.

So far, we have 14 46 participants!
