200 Challengs Finale!

If you have been reading my blog long, you know I have been doing The 200 Challenge. Well, it is time to recap all of 2010. Are you ready to see just how much I saved on groceries in 2010? Let the fun begin!

Total spent in 2010
Spending an average of $172.19 a month

Total spent in 2009
Spending and average of $236.15

Total saved being part of The 200 Challenge

***Drum roll, please!!!***


Wow!!!!!!!!!!! Let just say I need to take Sarah, the host of The 200 Challenge, out for a very nice meal at a very nice restaurant for saving me this much money! No, really!

So what does that mean for 2011? I plan on keeping my grocery budget the same so it should be a good year. I plan on tweaking a few of my other budget categories to save even more money this year than last year. I will let be sure to update you on how I plan on doing that! God is providing for us, and He always will. I hope that my 2011 budget will bring glory to Him because that is what it should do. Everything we do should bring Him glory!

So what are your tricks for saving money? Tell me what works for you! I would love to know for the new year!
