• $50 Weekly Menu Plan Help: Sebring, FL

    This weeks $50 Menu plan help across the USA spotlight is on Sebring, FL! Luckily, there are some great resources available in this particular area!
    Sebring has a wide selection of grocery stores to choose from, as well as a variety of local farmers markets. If you're new to menu planning and cutting your grocery budget, we highly recommend that you take a quick inventory of what you already have on hand in your pantry, fridge and freezer. Generally speaking, we don't recommend attempting to
    purchase all of your groceries in a single week. This makes it considerably more difficult to take advantage of seasonal deals.
    Additional details about how to plan the menu, as well as find deals on meats are available in our eBook, "The 2012 Family Guide to Groceries under $250 a Month".
