$75 Grocery Challenge Final Link-up

Sign in here to post how you did for the month! I’ll be sharing my update on Friday!


  1. I came out at 536.02 for the month. This is good for me. Well under the average $625 per month of the last several months and under the current budget of $600. We’re going to try a $550 budget. I could have gone at least $50 less by skipping sale and extra produce from the farmer’s market.

  2. Yay, Becky!!


  3. Hi Mary,

    I follow your blog and have linked it quite often lately on my personal blog. Yesterday I went to my husband’s cousin’s house and she helped me can tomatoes for the first time. We used your video way. She does other ways but thought this looked easy for me. So now I just have to figure out what to do with the tomatoes I canned. I have your new book…are there any recipes in there that would use a quart of the tomatoes….I am so helpless. But I am learning! You are inspiring!


  4. Hi Sarah, I would guess there are at least 2 dozen recipes in my book that use a quart of tomatoes– I use tomatoes a lot. Just a couple of quick ideas: a quart of tomatoes is a great start to a pot of stew or chili. Or add a spaghetti seasoning packet, some garlic, and some ground beef, and you have a yummy spaghetti sauce.
