I know, I know....this has been done to death.
But, I am desparate to cut down on my food bill. I do not coupon because I buy a lot of store brand stuff. I buy my meats at an Amish market which saves money and is better.
I have started meal planning which helps.
However, I cannot get my bill below $250 a week for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens). This includes everything...cat food, cosmetics, etc.
My first step is to get it below $175. Small steps.
I work full-time and I am in a PhD program...I'm extremely busy. My dh works 60 hours a week. Both my girls are very active.
So, making things from scratch isn't easy. I live in the city so growing my own foods isn't going to work.
The best grocery store near me is Giant.
Anyway, any tips within my ability would be great.
