We will be sharing ALL of our food, budget, grocery shopping, meals, recipes, etc. that we use for 30 days to give you an inside look of what feeding a family of 8 looks like for us.
30 DAY INFO
As part of this 30 Day share we will be sharing & posting pictures of the groceries we buy, receipts (to show purchase amounts & sales), the recipes we use to make meals, the meals we eat, the deals & coupons we use, the budget we use or save, the food storage items we stock up on, the freezer meals we make, the meals or treats we make to give away, etc. This should be a fun adventure! We hope you enjoy the information and find something within it that your family can benefit from.
A budget is telling your money where to go, instead of wondering where it went.
OUR 30 DAY PLAN
$100- weekly date night with my hubby
$600- groceries & food storage
$100- pizza nights
We make most of our meals homemade and as close to scratch as possible. Each of our 4 oldest kids have 1 night a week they are responsible to make dinner for the family. We involve them with the budget goals, and sometimes the shopping as well. The meals are typically planned out a week or more in advance, however, if there is a good sale at the grocery store we adjust the menu accordingly to benefit from the sale.
We will post the weekly meal assignments and the planned meals.
A lot of the recipes we use are currently on my main blog- A to Z for Moms Like Me. However, we will be adding them to this blog as we make/use them and our hopes is that they will be more user/printer friendly with the updated version.
