I’m finding that weekly seems to work out better for me to in order to keep focused on what is truly important…interesting to see what works for others.
So nice to see a lot of real food pictured!!!
Hi Johnlyn! Thanks for taking the time to comment.
As far as the real food, if you read Save More-Clip Less you know that I try to feed my family real food as much as possible. It’s always a challenge to balance nutrition and the budget!
