This month, I’m trying to keep my groceries well under budget. I’d like to have a little extra available in future months if I want to have a freezer cooking session (which always seems to put me over my monthly budget) or if I want to stock up at a great sale. This week, I did stay under budget. Let’s hope I can keep it up!
Just a Few Facts About Us
Our family of 5 chooses to eat mostly organic produce and grass-fed and pasture-raised meats. I’m Paleo, my daughter is semi-Paleo, and the rest of us are gluten free. Everyone except my husband is dairy free. Our goal for 2018 is to spend on average $750 per month (or less) on groceries.
