grocery game monthly challenge

Why some people hate the grocery store: The Grocery game challenge #4 Apr 21-27, 2014

SHOPPING IS NOT FOR EVERYONE   I could teach you 10 ways to save money buying food but if you hate the grocery store there is nothing that I can say that will convince you to spend more time planning your shops. Grocery shopping is one household task that some people cringe at having to do.

There’s not many times we have the heart pumping “start the car” moments anymore and we’re happy with that.   What We’ve Learned    If you follow Canadian Budget Binder you know that I started The Grocery Game Challenge  (GGC) back in early 2012 with much success over the past year.
