Re: Frugal Eating Support Thread

So excited to read all about your ideas - hubby and I definitely need this forum! DS is only 4 mo so he only eats b/m so far. I was spending 100/week just for the 2 of us (which I always thought was too much, just didn't have the motivation to cut it til I quit my job!)

One thing I've done for us is started cooking with bags of lentils and dry beans. It's easy to vary the flavor with spices and veggies. I cut the meat to only a couple of times a week, and now our grocery bills have been cut nearly in half!! Still have work to do on the budget tho - that $$ doesn't include toiletries/cleaning supplies. Would love to hear more about cleaning with vinegar and baking soda!
