JOY! Pure and simple.
It refuses to get warm here! How about you? The only thing coming up here is potatoes and I'm itching for a break in rain/cold to get some squash plants in the ground!
Yesterday my husband met a couple at church who paid off something like $80,000 in debt! He kept telling me I need to talk to her. I liked her, met her briefly, but missed the life story part. Now I'm anxious for next Sunday to roll around.
One of the things they did was cut their groceries down to $80/month.
Can you imagine!? I mean, I thought $200 was good for us, but I'm curious to see if I can halve that. I don't know if they just have the one toddler or more kids, but apparently they eat a lot of oatmeal. :)
Besides the obvious beans and rice, what have you done to lower the grocery bill?
We're done potatoes in various forms (baked fries, baked potato night, potato soup). I'm a big fan of vegetable soup night too. I need to get back to baking my own bread, especially since Tumbleweed may have a wheat, dairy (or both) allergy and I want to try other grains. I've been thinking a lot of about our food lately and this has really got my mind pondering...
How low can a family of 5 get their grocery bill and still eat healthy? hmmmmmm
