I’m Michele, a total newbie to this site from the Schenectady, NY area.
I stumbled upon this site by fate ~ I don’t believe in accidents, just life pointing you in a direction you should head 🙂
I have to get this off my chest…I DESPISE COUPONING! I knew there had to be a better way to plan good meals for a week (or 2) without constant clipping. AND my luck with coupons has generally been this: If Kellogg’s cereals are on sale, I have coupons for General Mills, THEN when there’s a good deal on General Mills, my coupons are expired or the other way around! :bang:
I am a stock up shopper (if its on a great sale, I stock up!) And now that I have totally and completely depleted what was edible in the freezer, and my family is totally and completely SICK of pasta, it’s time to rethink, refine and change my shopping habits!
Happy savings to everyone…February 12, 2014 at 10:20 pm #14957
Welcome today is my first day here also. I hope to get a lot of information on cooking. WE are so tired of eating the same things over and over also.April 10, 2014 at 3:41 am #15028
Check out the recipes on the site. Lots of yummy things for all meals and desserts too! Also if you haven’t read it yet check out the family guide to groceries under $250 a month (2012). Lots of good info there.
Have not been able to achieve it yet but have slashed our food budget considerably. It’s a free download, link should be on the right side of the page. Happy Saving!April 22, 2014 at 3:12 pm #15043
My name is Tam and I am from Bixby, OK. I am looking for ways to feed a family of four without having to go in debt. We seem to struggle making menus and keeping to them. It is so convenient to run to the store for ingredients when I see a new recipe that looks so good.
Problem is that my family and I love to eat. We cook together, make homemade breads, bake together and so food is part of us. We are all overweight and are trying to eat smaller portions and eat things that are healthier. I cam across the Budget 101 on Facebook and thought I can do this too.
We are trying to save for a deposit on buying a house. Think if I can reduce my grocery bill from $500 a month down to $250!May 28, 2014 at 9:32 pm #15054
I am new to this site. I live in the lower Hudson Valley of New York. I currently spend $200-$300 a week on groceries. I am working very hard to change that.
I am so happy to find a budget site that has a real family with teens. ( like I do) I have been very discouraged with the sites that claim a small grocery budget when it is only a wife, husband, a 3yo and a baby. I had a small food bill way back then too!
