$5 {Frugal Friday} Food For Others

The month has begun and my $5 budget has restarted.  For those of you who are knew to my site on Fridays I track the food I have purchased to give to others...the goal for me is to stretch $5 to purchase as much as I can to donate at the end of the month.  Why $5? Because it breaks down to such a small amount every week...$1.25 that it is doable.  $5 a month  ... that is the goal.


July - 1st week - spent $0 - purchased 4 bottles of Kraft Sandwich Mayo.  (I purchased these at Publix this week using the Yellow Advantage coupons.  They were BOGO priced at $1.98 and the coupons were for $1.00 per bottle - I told you about this Deal HERE)


I still have $5 left in my monthly budget.....are you doing this challenge?  One similar? I would love to hear about it!

Very cool! Great idea to really try and stretch the $5, I bet the family in need gets a lot more that way!
