$100 Grocery Challenge: End of January 2020

Our regular grocery budget is $500 a month. That is for 4 adults. Hubby has a dairy allergy, YD can't eat gluten and I am on a low sodium diet. This includes all of our food, cleaning and hygiene items. I was hoping to spend $100 or less in January. Our pantry is full and so were the freezers. But plans change sometimes. I came across a great sale on ground beef that I couldn't pass up. And then a friend let me know of a sale on chicken breasts that were 99¢ a pound. YD and I went to see if anything was left. 

And there was. I ended up getting 44 pounds of chicken cutlets. YD lives on chicken so she was very happy about this. 

I repackaged everything into smaller bags for future meals.  

I also bought 2 juices that were on sale and GF bagels. The total was $56.68. My previous total was $125.54.  My new total is $188.22. I am good with that. I bought 80+ pounds of meat this month. 

What did you buy this week? 


  1. What a fantastic deal on chicken!!! Good job on stocking up. Money in the bank.
    I am doing low spend again for Feb. Why not?
    Have a good week.

  2. I wish I could find chicken that cheap. I, too, would buy many packages.

    1. I haven't seen it this low in a long time. The best I usually see is $1.69 for breasts.

  3. Wow, what a great deal on the chicken! I would have stocked up on that too. How neat. :)

  4. I would have gladly gone over $100 budget on food if I'd been presented with cheap beef and chicken deals too. No point in cutting off your food nose to spite your money face, right? lolz

  5. Wow! That's cheap. We bought boneless skinless chicken breasts for $2.99/lb and we were impressed with that. We also bought whole chicken for .99 cents a pound and lean ground beef for 2.99/lb. for around here that's awesome deals. We also got 3 meals from Good Foods for free. I don't think we will renew. It's too expensive.

    1. I can't remember the last time I saw chicken breasts this low. I got all I could fit in the freezer.
