My $12 Challenge: I hope I can make it to $1,000

These shopping trips are part of my $12 Challenge. Click here to see entire list of everything I purchased so far!

I’ve decided I will retire this challenge when I reach $1,000 in merchandise… if I make it that far.  When I started this challenge, I really had no clue I could go this far on $12 plus the tiny bit of spare change that I find on the ground!  I just hope I can make it to $1,000… I think I can!!!
