We started off the week with great deals on meat on Sunday. By Monday we were making sure it was smoked and ready to go. The rest was frozen or cooked throughout the week. You know it's not only a lot of work getting the deals but it's a lot of work putting it up.
I remember when I was younger going to grocery shop and bringing it home only to let it go to waste before I did anything with it. I was young, working, and trying to do it all. All that stopped when I started watching my pennies more and stayed at home with our children. Just wish I could have some of that money back!
A Little Information:
I want to keep our grocery budget at $100.00. I always forget to clarify how many people live here permanently and who we have her to babysit. We have 3 people that live here (youngest daughter buys some of her groceries) and we babysit two grandchildren (although now they will be in school most days).
We also want to eat healthy so our grocery bill is a little higher than we are used to. Like my husband says, "our health is our wealth."
