Food Drive Results + New Frugal Challenge

Remember November’s Frugal Food Drive Challenge? Well [finally] here are the results:

frugal food drive

$173.53 in food items for a total of $37.97 out of pocket!

My portion was $45.49 and I spent $9.38. Eleanor won with $46.63 for $8.81, Tiffany $36.85 and $44.56 from Ann.

All of our collected items went to the Central Virginia Food Bank.

Rising food prices? While I certainly didn’t do everything I could, we all agreed the store sales were not nearly as good as last year.


We’ve got another challenge starting tomorrow 1/8, and as usual, you’re invited to join in! We’ll be collecting toiletries and personal care products on a $10 budget. This challenge will run through January 24. We’re still figuring out the charity we’ll be supporting.

If you’re interested in participating, email me at richmondbargains at gmail dot com so I can keep you in the loop.
