Okay, with gas at $4 a gallon I am on the hunt to cut our grocery bill. We are going to be working on getting our 125X75 garden ready to grow for Fall! But in the meantime I am trying to reduce our grocery budget by finding some more frugal recipes. My one issue is they have to taste good! I'm not just interested in my family choking it down. I want to make some "tasty" food! So I always start my searches at http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/, The Pioneer Woman (though she is not the most frugal but usually very tasty!) and then on to Google. Right now I am focusing on bean dishes (you might not want to sit behind us in church...lols). I want to have at least 2-3 dishes a week that cost no more then .50 per serving! Yes, you read that correctly I want to feed my family of 5 a healthy dinner for $1.50! I'll keep you updated on my progress...But I am slashing my budget from $450 to 275 (who needs Jenny Craig!). On top of this we have decided to try to drink DHA free milk (translation: organic milk which is at least $2 more per gallon!) To balance this out we are giving up Crystal Light (well Wal-Mart's generic version of Crystal light!) $1.79 and sticking to mint tea, mint water, milk & water!
What is your family doing to save money in tight economic times?
Rejoicing in the kitchen!
