Meal planning is the #1 action we took that instantly took our monthly food spending from over $700 a month for only two people, to now under $400 each month for our family of five.
Every month I share with you exactly what our family is eating for the month on a $400 budget! Chances are these monthly meal plans on a budget are going to help you save thousands of dollars each year!
The bills keep on coming! Unless you are an extreme minimalist who lives off your own land and built your own self-sufficient solar energy system, you are pretty much guaranteed every single month to have to pay up.
And even if you are such a minimalist, you are still going to have to pay land taxes.
Though, that type of self-sustaining life does sound a bit nice. Doesn’t it?
My point is, for the majority of us, we have to pay the bills! This mandatory task can become extremely stressful when you are living paycheck-to-paycheck.
Take a look for yourself! I’m sharing with you exactly what our family will be eating this month in our monthly meal plan and also giving you the exact penny amount we spent on groceries for the entire month!
Luckily it paid off big time! Not only was I able to make six large raised planter beds but I have had a nice supply a beautiful wood to feed a few projects over the last year.
This easy project I am going to be sharing today has been something I have had in my mind for a while now and decided to put into action a few weeks ago!
When decorating my home I am finding that I love the look of distressed wood. I also love using family photos to add a little love. Cheesy but true! Put the two ideas together and here you have my new priceless pallet picture holder.
There is some truth to the rumor that eating healthy can be so expensive. The truth comes when you don’t take a few minutes to search out the sales and coupons.
Or maybe you just don’t know the right places to look…
As I was wondering around the dollar store in search of some last minute party supplies (I throw awesome parties on only a $50 budget!), I started to notice that there were quiet a few options when it comes healthy snacks at the dollar store!
