    Hi! I love your blog! I shared it yesterday on my facebook page. I am going to share it on my website facebook page today. I loved your E-Book, too! I could have written it myself!
    I have 6 boys, 14yrs to 1 year. They eat A LOT! I was warned but never even imagined what they could put away! I used to have a $75.00 a week budget but I stopped that a while back because I felt like I was starving them! I’ve had to really think of some homemade foods and cheap yet healthy meals to save money. I have ADHD children and I noticed that all the processed foods, foods with dyes, and sugars make them behave wilder. I really try to stay away from all that. I love your menu post. I do that as well on my site. I hope to see more of that. Do you have more than the 8/19 menu? I couldn’t find a button for any more. I’m always looking for better ways to save money and help with the menu budget. I can be a little obsessed a t times. :)
    I hope you have time to check out my site and enjoy reading it. I will be a reader of yours…when I have time ! 😉 ~ Blessings~

      Hi Holly! I am so glad to “meet” you. :)

      To find the past menu links go to the FOOD tab at the top, then click the GREAT POSTS button. The Weekly Menu archive is the first button.

      I know what you mean about the processed foods affecting your kids with ADHD. From what I have read ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders are similar in the way they affect the brain. We have found that giving Cod Liver Oil supplements really helps. I get mine from Vita Cost-Carlson is the best brand.

      Have a Peaceful Day!

      Hi Jessica!

      No problem-thanks for asking. :)

      At the top of the post is a little notation: “*Previously purchased and in the pantry, fridge or freezer.” It just means that these are items that I purchased in previous weeks, so they were not included in this week’s budget.

      It’s just a way to show that buying multiple sale items brings your budget down over the following weeks. Make sense?
