There are six people in our family. We seem to have a grocery bill between $800-$900 a month in groceries. When you break that down, it doesn't seem too bad. Couple hundred- give or take- a week. We all know the organic or natural foods can cost more... fruits and veggies are more pricey than a bag of chips! I've been thinking a lot lately about our finances. Being good stewards of what God has given us. Since I'm in charge of the homemaking end- which includes grocery shopping and cooking- I've decided to see what I can do! I'm attempting (and my husband laughs at me) to get my grocery bill down to about $500 a month... Ultimately saving us $300-$400! Impossible? Maybe! We'll see! I'm cutting out a lot of the non-necessities, keeping plenty of fruits and veggies, and not going overboard on milk and juice (our biggest offenders)! I'm not cutting it down so tight that we aren't able to eat a well balanced healthy diet, but I am cutting it down to where we think about what and why we eat. I'm hoping to eliminate a lot of the foods that get thrown away too- my kids are real bad about that- it drives me crazy! So we'll see... I guess this is my March challenge!
