How do people feed their family on $30 or $40 or $50 a week? Are they packing lunches? What are the making for dinner?
I try to read those websites and blogs. I do a weekly meal plan. I make a grocery list. I try to use coupons and shop sales.
Tonight I waited until the Super Bowl had started before heading to the grocery store. The place was empty...SCORE! My plan worked.
This is what I spent...
I don't even want to tell you my husband and daughter did some shopping Saturday for a get together he was hosting Saturday night (after I made tons of yummy food....nobody showed up) and some other random stuff and managed to spent a little over $70!!
This is what I got - Like a blogger crazy I carefully arranged EVERYTHING I purchased to take this photo -
It seems like a lot of $$$ to me for not a lot of food. I want to be the woman who feeds her family all week and only spends $50 at the grocery store. I guess I just need to keep trying to be a better more frugal shopper.
