I recently went to a personal development seminar and it was epic!! Lol, seriously though, life changing. One of the things she talked about is America’s obsession with gluttony. Whether it be food,money or just an abundance of stuff. I can totally relate to that. I mean we were spending about $1000 a month at the grocery store, $500 a month on dining out and I was 30 lbs overweight. *Reality check*
One of the assignments she gave us was to wage war on debt. One of the ways to start that war is by cutting your food budget down, by a lot!! $20 per person, per week to be exact. When I heard that number my jaw dropped. Clearly, we would starve!! Then she talked about this exact subject on her show a few days later and it all made sense.
Now, I am only starting my second week, but it is my new obsession. It’s like a game, What is the least amount I can spend on food? What can I make with what I already have? The money we save now goes towards paying off debt. Saving money and losing weight (down 3 lbs) feels GREAT!! But I didn’t want to have this feeling all to myself. There is no reason that you can’t do this as well. There is no reason your friends and family can’t do it as well. I came up with a fun way for everyone to do this. You can keep track of your progress and we can share recipes and success stories together. I am starting my own Challenge and would love for you to participate!
