  • If you're eligible get wic, and if you don't have insurance you can try to apply for medicaid, that may help. My biggest money saver is at the groceries. I get the weekly circular for the local store, you can view it online, then I plan out a weeks worth of meals around whats on sale. I also use one of those coupon site, they don't often have what i use but clip the stuff I can use. And instead of buying junk-foods it's way cheaper to make them yourself. On a good week I can feed a family of 4 and one pregnant momma on $50.

  • clearence racks....dollar stores has the same thing everwhere just cheeper.
    places like stores...
    I put 1/2 my tips up and do not touch it.
    plain out meals.
    only buy whats needed thats y i said plain for the wk. if you have no excusse for going to the store less you spend.
    also buy JUST whats on the list.
    you can never go wrong with coupons...cut.cut.cut...sometimes ask friends if they want theres too...usully will give them up.

    i resently got my food stamps cut off. Laws changed so we dont qulify no more. I hope these help.

  • When my husband gets paid he gives me say $100 for goceries whatever is left I spend. When it's gone there is nothing else to spend!! I would say keep out a little cash and put the rest in the bank
