I get $600 a month, any budget friendly recipes?
Stew (beef or chicken)
Chicken and Dumplings
Mostly comfort foods because those are the ones that will stretch.
How many people? For a family of 4 you could eat whatever lavish things you want. For a family of 10 you'd need to supplement with cash.
$600 for 3 people.
King Crab Legs
Really? We have a family of 3, and we only get $480 a month. We eat just fine. I'm sure you'll figure it out.
You don't need a budget to feed 3 people for $600 a month. Ridiculous.
Rice, pasta, beans, frozen veg, and stock up on meats. Think about what you may use everyday, like milk, juice, bread, cereal... etc. And keep those on hand but when you go big grocery shopping, buy things that can be frozen or stored in a pantry for good while. Also, meal planning is good. I've heard of meal planning and making crock pot meals for the whole month and freezing them. You put ingredients together in a ziplock freezer bag, freeze, and then when you're ready to cook it, thaw it out and put it in the crock pot. It may seem like a lot of work in the beginning but I think it would be worth it.
