In a nutshell, it is a one-week grocery slashing marathon where you can save a big pile of money, declutter your pantry and learn new skills all at the same time!
Simple! For one week you try as hard as you possibly can to stay out of the shops. Instead of going out and doing your usual supermarket shop you have to stretch the food you already have in your cupboard, pantry, garden and freezer to stay within your $21 budget.
You see, the average household of four people spends $320 per week on food. By completing the $21 Challenge for just one week you will have an extra $300 in hand. This means if you do a $21 Challenge once a month in your household, you can save yourself $3600 in one year.
We have already done all the hard work for you. All the information and inspiration you need to succeed is in this book. Enjoy learning great new skills, time-saving tips, and ideas to turn leftovers into delicious new meals.
To help you get started here are links to the first and second chapters of the $21 Challenge book.
To give you an idea of what is in the book here are sample pages from each chapter.
