Challenge: How Much Food Could You Buy For Just $10?
We #RVA Savvy Bloggers are back at it again! Our School Supplies Challenge lit the fire in all of us to continue to try & find ways to give back with our knack for savings! For the past month - myself & 4 other local Richmond Frugal Bloggers; Alison from Richmond Bargains, Stephanie from Coupon Clippin' Mommy, Tiffany from Young & Frugal in Virginia and Kim from Day by Day Savings have been scouring the Fall Holiday Sales in order to try & get as much non-perishable food for just $10 (w/out tax)! All of our bounty will be donated to the Central Virgina Food Bank to help those in need.
So without further ado - here is what I personally & we collaboratively accomplished!
I purchased a grand total of $104.61 worth of non-perishable food for just $10.17 spent out of pocket! This was a savings of 90.28% for 63 items!
I am pretty proud of myself as I stretched my $10 so much further than I had originally anticipated! Out of the savings, $43.73 was from using coupons & the remaining $50.71 came from store discounts & sales! The majority of my items came from Kroger with a quick stop to Target & CVS thrown in.
