For me, writing it down often seems to have a way of making it happen. There is something in the mix over at our house.
To make a long story short, I’ve been coupon-ing in an effort to save money. That is what you do – right? As it turns out, I’ve started to feel silly. The endless printing ($) and sorting (time), plus the tolls to get to the store and I get the feeling I’m ending out where I started. Plus, we always seem to bring home things we were’t planning on buying.
Then I came across this post. I don’t think I’d EVER be able to get us down to $250 a month and even she normally is $450. How does she propose do it? Instead of couponing, she is cooking from whole foods! That resonates! During the summer, my daughter and I eat mostly from our CSA. All that goes out the window during the winter – even though I’m splitting a winter share for the first time this year. Here’s another whole foods blog a family of four for $500 a month.
There seems to be quite a bit of interest in a buying club for the community. Let’s make it happen! Get me out of the grocery store.
Sites like this local lady are SO inspirational. Check out their diet! So starting today, I’m taking little steps to cut out the processed food from our diet. Another round of yogurt is in the making, pizza dough is in the freezer, granola is in the oven, soup in the crockpot and pasta for dinner in the fridge. Not bad for nap time!
