All You Grocery Challenge

There are times when I simply flip through my All You magazine without reading any of it. I'm on a mission to clip the coupons! This month something caught my eye. All You is sponsoring a Grocery Challenge.

How Does It Work?
  • Register HERE by July 12 (Sunday).

  • Beginning on July 13, spend $25 or less per family member for your weekly groceries. So, for a family of 4, you should spend $100 or less each week. All groceries count, including restaurant purchases (even fast food/takeout!).

  • You may use stockpiled food, produce from your garden, or items you trade with friends. Those do not count toward your weekly limit.

  • Household supplies and toiletries do not count toward each week's total.

  • You must track your spending using the Spending Log HERE.

  • You must also save your receipts. If you are a finalist, you will be required to submit your receipts.

  • Post your strategies on our blog HERE, being sure to share your money-saving tips.

  • When you sign up, you will receive weekly emails that include tips, recipes, and ideas to help you save.

  • At the end of the contest, you'll need to complete the exit form in order to activate your entry.

What's in it for you?

10 finalists will be selected. They're looking for people who make the most creative and healthful choices. You will be judged on staying within the contest spending guidelines (50%), creativity and ingenuity (25%), and healthy choices (25%). Out of those 10, one winner will receive a $100 grocery card and a year's supply of Knorr side dishes. The winner will also be featured in All You Magazine.

The Fine Print

The challenge is open to legal US residents age 21 and older.
The challenge begins at 12:01 a.m. 7/13.
The challenge ends at 11:59 p.m. 8/17.
