Stick to a strict budget of one hundred dollars each week. This pertains to ALL food purchases - snacks, lunches, eating out, random impulse buys, etc.
Maintain a HEALTHY diet...this means no resorting to ramen noodles, doritos, or fast food.
Try new recipes each week from around the world.
We want this blog to be realistic. There are a few occasions where we will probably not be sticking to our budget...birthdays, holidays, and road trips. We will TRY, but no promises.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS:
Our grocery bill has been increasing rapidly for months now. We easily spend around two hundred dollars a week when you count in all food purchases. I know many families are in the same position we are and most feel helpless. I've heard so many people say that there is no way to feed a family healthy and nutritious meals on a strict budget. Well, we are going to try. We will share tips, recipes, and hopefully some weight loss success stories along the way. This won't be easy so we'll need your support and suggestions!
100 DOLLARS A WEEK? THAT SEEMS LIKE A LOT....
I considered making our weekly budget seventy-five dollars. However, we are a family of five with a baby. I want this blog to be realistic and attainable. One hundred dollars allows each member of our family a 2.85 daily food budget. That is less than what most people spend on their morning coffee or lunch.
