    I joined gb101 for help in reducing my grocery bill. I recently left my job to stay home with my now 8 month old DD. I love being home with her, but it’s been difficult not having the extra disposable income.

    I’m not a very good cook – my DH will tell you that :blushing:, but I’d like to think I could be taught.

    I broke apart my last month’s Target visits – here’s how it went:
    ~$100 in pet food, ~$150 in convenience items, ~$100 in fruits & veggies, ~$50 in dairy items, ~$100 in meat, fish, poultry, pork, & eggs, and ~$50 on taxables (toothpaste, towels, body wash, body lotion, laundry soap, dishwasher tabs, etc.) So I currently spend between $550 & $600 a month! :ohmy:

    Even though I am home all day, I am an on-line student working towards my masters. So, when DD is sleeping, I am studying most days. I don’t have an exorbitant amount of time to cook… maybe I could use the crock pot more…

    P.S. We have around 10 outside cats that we feed, plus an inside cat and two large dogs! (we live on a 10 acre hobby farm) :0smile:

    Thank you for your post ­čÖé

    We live in Harmony, MN – 55939

    I tend to drive the 45 miles into Rochester every two weeks for groceries, because the large retail stores tend to be cheaper than our little grocery store. Although I recently found out our local meat processor has opened a retail counter. They are significantly cheaper on beef, chicken & pork!
