Are you enjoying the warmer weather and slower pace of summer too? I can already tell that summer is zipping by way faster than I'd like. Oh summer, linger a little longer won't you?

First start with an open mind. Clear out all preconceived notions you have about the price difference at the store. I want you to head to the market not with prices in mind, and I hear the protests, but I always shop with prices in mind, yes, me too, but for now, forget about them. How you shop and what you shop for is going to drastically change and this is going to make all the difference at the checkout, so for now, forget the prices.
Where there's a will there's a way. The world wants us to believe that we can't provide healthy foods for our family if we live within a budget. It's totally not true, you just have to be a bit creative with your shopping. Saving money always means that I have to labor a little more than someone that isn't frugal, but that's okay. We are able to eat whole and organic foods and still stay within our grocery budget.
So let's review:
- Eliminate prepackaged convenience foods
- By eating whole foods you stay fuller longer and more satisfied which equals eating less x every family member = spending less at the market
- Make meat a side dish, not a star of your plate
We all deserve to eat good, healthy God-given foods. This is how our family makes that happen. Please feel free to share your tips and tricks with me, I love learning new ways to shop clean for less!
