Welcome to the home of the $21 Challenge!

We are glad you could drop by. I'm Fiona Lippey, I run this website and I co-wrote the book, The $21 Challenge.

This book has been hugely popular in Australia and New Zealand. The $21 Challenge has helped tens of thousands of people get out of the vicious cycle of mindlessly shopping for groceries every week. Everyone loves it. But, we kept getting emails from our American and English friends asking if they could have a copy of the book.

So here it is!

What IS the $21 Challenge?

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!

Will I need coupons?

No, this is not a coupon cutting book. This book will put you in control of your grocery bill.

How does it work?

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 just stretch the food you already have in your cupboard, pantry, garden and freezer to stay within your $21 budget. Easy!

It is a fun way to save $300 in one week!

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.

Can you do it? Absolutely!

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. And best of all, save your hard earned cash!

The first and second chapters are free.
