I'm no budget super-star. I don't dumpster dive for coupons and get my groceries for $0.06. I haven't even cut my grocery bill in half. But, like a lot of you, we made a goal this year to limit our extra spending and watch our daily spending budget. Newsflash - babies on the way are not cheap!!
A few of the challenges we have faced are living in a small, remote town that doesn't have a lot of market competition, so food prices are fairly high. I eat a 100% gluten free diet and my husband eats gluten free dinners. We also like to and want to eat healthy. This means fresh produce and a decent amount of lean meats.
I know that there are tons of blogs out there sharing their food budget plans and tricks and I've definitely taken some tips from them! I still have never tried once-a-month cooking but it really intrigues me and I hope to try it sometime. Today I want to share some of my not-so-mind-blowing tips that I have found help us save quite a bit of money each month on groceries.
None of this is earth-shattering, but I hope some of these tips are helpful if you're trying to eat healthfully on a budget. These are things that normal, busy people can totally do - at least you could try one or two! The little extra time it takes to make a meal plan and grocery list and check prices while shopping can really pay off for your checking account!
