Re: Frugal Eating Support Thread

Wow - what a great thread!!

My budget for a fam of 3 is $300 a month- that inludes all cleaning, supplies, topiliettires and paper products (been busting it alot latley - just went back to work part-time and buying a bit of extra prepackaged stuff - gotta stop!)

Anyway my number one tip is DO NOT GO TO THE GROCERY STORE MORE THAN ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS!
I plan 12 meals and then go and do really big g-store shopping- I might pop in just for yogurt and fruit extra but that is it!

Also - I'm a member of a produce co-op - me and 11 other family's go in and buy
produce in bulk every 2 weeks from a produce distrubtor - it's great to get great produce at cost.

My DH is a big meat eater - so I think I could cut back more - but he wants meat everynight and a lot of it!!

Hope June is the month I get back on budget!! Gwen
