I am starting the $300.00 challenge! Esther has been doing this for the last couple weeks and I have decided to jump in now and see how I do. My first day was yesterday and I have spent $15.10 so far. It could have been less if I wouldn't have been in such a hurry and forgot some coupons and didn't figure out each purchase correctly. Oh well.

Here is what I have gotten so far:

Rite Aid:
  1. 3 packs of Huggies All Natural diapers
  2. 2 packs Huggies diapers
  3. 2 Sunday newspapers
  4. 1 bottle Proantix--not pictured, but it is a free after rebate item, plus after coupon a $3.00 money maker!!

Total came to $18.71. I had a $25.00 gift card to Rite Aid from a previous rebate and used that to pay for it. After the $10.00 rebate on the diapers and the $6.99 rebate on Proantix, my total will be $1.72! Unbelievably awesome deal for diapers!!

Walgreens:

  1. 1 package Carefree pads
  2. 3 Sally Hansen nail polishes
  3. 2 Scotch Brite scrubbies
  4. 2 Thermacare
  5. 2 Lolli-pops for the girls (fillers)
  6. 1 Sunday newspaper
  7. Chalk plaything (filler)
  8. 4 erasers (fillers)
  9. 2 Root Care moisturizers
  10. 1 Aussie hair gel
  11. 1 Aussie hair spray
  12. 2 Oral B toothbrushes

I split these up over 5 different transactions. If I would have taken the time to figure it out, I could have spent even less. :( Oh well. Total came to $8.79. This was after coupons and RR's ($27.50 used and $32.50 back).

We also went out to lunch with Caleb at Wendy's and spent an additional $6.31. Boy oh boy, does this ever add up fast!

In case you are wondering, I have $75.00 in cash in my wallet--that is how much it comes to per week out of the $300.00. I am counting any type of food, drink, "deal" purchase, etc. all out of the $75.00 a week. The only thing I am not taking out of that amount is gas. We'll see how we do. Here's to hoping for a good week!
