Grocery Challenge-Update 1

by Andy Hough on May 4, 2007

So far the grocery challenge is going well. Of course, this is only the fourth day. I have hit one snag though. The grocery store where I performed the mystery shop only had skim milk in one gallon sizes. I can’t drink a whole gallon of milk before it goes bad so I didn’t purchase any. My new challenge amount will be $5 to allow me to buy a couple half gallons of skim milk over the course of the month.

Just finished my last final yesterday. Should have more time to keep this blog updated now. I’ll be attending the Dave Ramsey event here in Kansas City tomorrow and will have a post about it next week.

You can freeze milk and thaw it out and it will be ok to use.

I WANTED TO EXPAND ON ANNS IDEA. IM A SINGLE PERSON ALSO AND WHAT I DO IS BUY GALLONS OF MILK WHEN ITS ON SALE. I PUT HALF OF THE GALLON INTO A HALF GALLON MILK JUG THAT I HAVE SAVED AND WASHED OUT THEN I FREEZE IT. KEEP IN MIND IT TAKES MILK A LONG TIME TO THAW OUT COMPLETELY. I USUALLY JUST LEAVE THE CARTON OUT ALL DAY.

I LOVE YOUR BLOG!
