    Hello!

    I am new to the site. I found your website through Pinterest. We are a family of 5 adults (for grocery purposes.) We live on one full-time and two part-time incomes. I am looking for ways to trim my grocery budget. I am home full time and not afraid cook from scratch.

    We garden and have chickens so that helps a lot. I am also a once a month shopper. Looking forward to the tips I can find here!

    Hi! Welcome to the site. Once a month shopping has it’s own challenges, like trying to find decent fresh veggies, but it sounds like you have that remedied with your garden. What seems to be your biggest expense in your grocery budget right now?

    Ha! Sorry to post and then disappear. Life got hectic. ­čÖé

    Our biggest expense is meat. I have 3 guys who are definitely meat eaters. I can get away with an occasional vegetarian dish, but not often. I guess produce is a big expense as well.

    Our garden is not producing yet and I try to make sure we have fresh or frozen fruit available for lunches and snacks as well as salad and fresh or frozen veggies. We try to eat fresh, non-processed(scratch) and simple but can’t necessarily always afford organic, though I try hard to avoid GMOs if it won’t bust my budget to do so. Also two of us are trying to lose weight.

    I tried the whole once a month shopping venture. It didn’t work out for us because of the whole produce thing you mentioned.

    Any tips are welcome!

    For the organic produce–Great article out there on when organic is worth it and when the “regular” produce is just fine. I moved up here to MI from NC and I have to say the produce has been my challenge as well. But I am loving the apples. And I can alot as well.

    I have basically 6 adults and one kid to feed in my home so I feel your struggle.
