So, it is May 1. Here is what I saved for the month of April:

Total spent in the month of March on groceries, dining out, household (includes diapers): $1,950
Total spent in the month of April on groceries, dining out and household: $724.61
For a grand total savings of:


I know!! We were just as shocked! Now, granted we spent a week in San Diego and didn't have to buy groceries that week but we still saved way more than I thought we would.

Now according to the "challenge" I would get half of that money to spend on whatever I want. You should have seen Drew back pedal!! So, we compromised. I didn't think we would save that much and neither did he. So, I get 1/4 of what we saved to spend on whatever I want (clothes). And I get a huge surge of satisfaction and motivation to keep spending less. I will post what I did to save money in a bit. It was very quite simple and really just comes down to mentality.

It makes me sick to think of all the money I have wasted....
