You either need to spend less or earn more. Here are a few suggestions for cutting back:
Buy towels and napkins at a second hand shop or garage sale, and stop using paper.
Make your own cleaners (send me a message for a great recipe)
Use lots of dried beans and lentils; have breakfast for dinner; plan meals and snacks before you shop; buy only what is on your list; drink only water.
I have a ton of recipes that are healthy, tasty, family and budget friendly. If you send me a message offlist, I will be happy to send you recipes and my complete list of ways to save money at the grocery store. There are three of us, plus frequent extra teens. We eat a mostly organic diet, and spend around $80 a week on groceries.
