Can we do it?

It's a little known fact that I have an addiction, that addiction is called shopping (OK so maybe its not a little known fact) I spend loads and loads of money on useless items that I have just got to have... My daughters chest of drawers is bursting with the amount of clothes she has, I can't keep my house clean because of the amount of stuff we have and every time I open my kitchen cupboard something falls out. I am public ally admitting that I have a problem!
"So what are you  going to do about this problem" I hear you ask!
Nothing... I'm going shopping tomorrow hahahaha just kidding, We have decided to take up the 21 Dollar Challenge, 21 Dollars a WEEK that is!! I have to feed my family, for a whole week on just 21 Dollars!! So if you feel like inviting us to Dinner feel free!! haha

How does it work?

Simple. For one week only you spend just $21 on groceries by stretching the food you already have in your cupboard, pantry, garden and freezer to stay within your $21 budget.

Not only will you eat well, you can be $300 richer!

The average family spends $320 per week on food. By completing the $21 challenge for just one week you will have an extra $300 in hand.

Trys and I actually spend close to $500 a week on crap, that a lot of money! So starting on the 4 th of April we will be doing this challenge for 4 weeks, we have a wedding in Bali coming up and we figured that if we save $500 a week, for four weeks, then that's our flights and accommodation!

I will be updating my blog every few days to let you know how we are going, please support us, and if you see me going near a shop with my credit card in hand, STOP ME!!! Any hints and tips on saving money and budget recipes will be greatly appreciated!

Wish us luck!
