My monthly budget challenge for this month was $360 or $90/week so I've {finally} come under budget this week. This is a seriously low amount spent by me for my family of five and I was only able to do so well because of the Mega Event sale at Kroger.

Even though I'm under budget this week, I've been over the previous two weeks this month so this will help my overall total for March.

Everyone's budget - just like everyone's family - looks different. My goal in sharing this is to help and inspire newbies. With a few good sites, a collection of Sunday insert coupons, and an hour or two, you can really cut your grocery budget as well!

How'd you do this week?
