I have to be honest, and I’ve been slacking on grocery shopping. I pretty much created this challenge to keep myself accountable. If you want to join feel free or simply want some tips on how you can be more resourceful, I’m sharing some helpful tips below. 

Must-Know Tips for a No-Spend Grocery Challenge 

Learn substitutions 
Learn substitutions for your easy day meals, also learn how to make your own items. It’s super easy to make your own buttermilk and BBQ sauce at home. I’ve used sparkling water to make pizza dough, and it was a game-changer. 

Make the right amount and/or eat your leftovers, you can turn roasted chicken leftovers into a pot pie, chicken soup, and alfredo. 

What You Have
Use everything you can prior to running to the store, use everything you can (food-related). 

Be Creative
Creativity is key Google and Pinterest will become your best friend. Be creative, and think outside of the box. 

Meal Plan 
Meal planning has been a game-changer for my family. In the past, I would meal plan once a week. Based on the items I had on hand. 

Do you have any tips?
