I hope you coupon....alot.
Well just about anything can be made from scratch so I would look into what I could buy to make things I wanted... for instance if I knew I would be making pancakes, waffles, biscuits, for breakfast I would be buying flour and some other ingredients instead of just buying them pre made to save the money. I would also not buy any produce in the store but instead go to a market or a local farm that allowed working for exchange of vegetables and fruits. They do have those google them! That would be my suggestions!
Yeah, I would definitely need it. Lol.
Just a lot of simple meal things that you can make big amounts of. Spaghetti can last for days, homemade soups, tuna noodle casserole, etc. If you make things from scratch like cream of soups, pancake/biscuit mix, spaghetti sauce, then you can really stretch your dollar. I also like to buy whole chickens. I use it for the main course of one meal and then take the rest of the meat off to make other things...chicken and dumplings, chicken noodle soup, sweet and sour chicken.
Sorry, that would be slim picking for a week in our home.
I buy gas and go check out the food banks, then work on getting a better job.
