I simple love your blog. I am a retired grandmother and even though my kids are raised, I am still on a budget, or I should say a fixed income.
I love all your tips and suggestions. I am a firm believer that it is not how much money you make, but how you manage it. Thanks for sharing.!!!! 🙂
I am totally curious how you pull this off!!!! I have 4 kids also & my grocery bill ois approximately $750-$850 a month.
You can download my FREE e-book here: https://thepeacefulmom.com/2011/08/19/free-e-book-save-more-clip-less/ which explains it all in detail. 🙂
I can not wait to implement your plans into our menu plans and grocery shopping!! I have been looking for something that would work for us, and this totally does!!
I’m so glad Kat!
I just wanted to tell you that your blog has really helped my family. I felt like all I did was spend money on groceries, but we still never had anything to eat. Planning a menu based on yours has really helped my budget and meal times. Thanks for being willing to share your process and menus.
I am soooo excited to hear that Alysha! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
