Depending on how you look at it the Grocery Challenge could be considered either a failure or a qualified success. I’m going to call it a qualified success. My original goal was to spend only $1 on groceries for the month. Then I changed it to $5 then to $10 and I spent more than both of those goals. The last part of the month I was depressed and whenever I feel depressed I eat junk food. The final result is that I spent $31.60 on food for the month. Although this is far more than my goal it is still a pretty low monthly total so I don’t consider the Grocery Challenge a complete failure. There is still plenty of food in my pantry so I should have a low food total for June as well.
