  1. I love that your menus, for the most part, include meat at least once a day (usually at dinner). This is AWESOME and i’m so glad I found it! I struggle with keeping a budget and also keeping my husband happy as far as food goes, he is of the belief that if he doesnt have meat on his plate at dinner, he WILL still be hungry. Personally I could get by without meat, but, I want to make food he will enjoy too!

    Thanks for this site!!

    • I’m having trouble understanding how this shopping list could possibly add up to $50.

      It wasn’t, Total spent this week $22.88
