How to eat healthy and feed a family os 5 healthy foods with a very TINY budget??
I posted this to a reply from another post of mine, and thought more people may see it if I post a brand new post.
There are weeks when grocery money is hard to come buy. For example, this week we had $50 for groceries. Luckily, we are kind of okay with dinner meals but it's stuff like ground meat, sausage, potatoes, white rice and pasts. :( I know, it's not the healthiest, but according to my DH, it's what we can afford.
Is there anyone in a similar "boat," so to speak? What do you do? Our family consists of me, DH, my 7 y.o. DD, 5 y.o. DD, and 4 y.o. DS. I usually find myself saving the fruits and veggies and even yogurts for the kids because they need the nutrition to grow and stay healthy so I eat WHATEVER is in the house like raman noodles, cheese doodles or something :(( I know, that's terrible but I feel VERY guility if I eat the healthy food and then there's not enough for the week...
If you can't work with $50 a week for a family of 5?... what is your grocery bill like for what size family and what kinds of things do you get?
(I am in nursing school and my DH is the only one working ATM. So, needless to say, we are on "hard times" until I can graduate and pass my boards. And, no, we do not quailify for state aide)
