I think I'm going to do another "Challenge". Last year I had the goal of not shopping for a whole month. Granted, I allowed certain concessions like gasoline, but for the mostpart nope!...no shopping. That meant that I made all of my meals from scratch (or things already in my cupboards). It was a fantastic experience. I learned a TON and saved a lot of money. So...thinking about doing it again! I might allow the purchase of fresh fruits and veggies this time. I soooo missed them by the end, and my vitamins couldn't make up for it.
