Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you might wonder what else is new in blog land. Lots of frugal women are posting about the need to plan your meals and trim your grocery budget to $50, even $30 a week.
Huh? In what non-Montgomery County, PA, area do they reside?
Maybe it's doable. I'm going to ask you to come along with me on a several week experiment and see if I can improve my spending, reduce the amount of food that I waste* and increase the quality of my diet.
Posts over the next few weeks will cover a number of topics:
- Creating a meal plan
- Shopping smart
- Stocking your pantry
- Using your freezer
- Making the most of leftovers
- Reducing prepackaged and processed foods
So, let's get started. I invite you to leave me a comment; let me know if there is a specific topic or question you want to see me address, or go ahead and challenge me to get down to the dollar amount of your weekly grocery budget.
*Look for another post about a FASCINATING book that I just finished reading. Did you know that the average American throws away about 15% of their groceries?
