Step 1 - Grocery Shopping in My Own Home
The good news of lesson number one is that I was able to go grocery shopping in my own freezer and pantry before I went grocery shopping at the store. I have another form that I use to plan my family meals for the week so I was able to organize that once I knew what was in my freezer. Our grocery list (another form) was much smaller than usual this week. We only had to buy perishables such as fresh fruit and veggies and milk. We spent under $50.00 which is pretty impressive for a family of six. Our buy of the day was our milk (3 litres bag) for just $2.77 with our coupons. If you would like a copy of any of the forms I have mentioned just leave me a comment or send me an email and I will send it to you. Be sure to check back tomorrow as I will be posting a great corn salad recipe that uses ingredients you probably have in your fridge and freezer and budget friendly.
