As a family of 6 we spend a lot of money on food, our weekly shopping bill would come to about $250. And that is not including the stuff I forget and have to go and back for. So really if we are being completely honest, I would say or weekly food bill comes to at least $350-400, That is for ONE week, I haven’t really added up everything I spend in a week at the supermarket, I am way to scared to do it, but man $400 a week on food is just CRAZY!!!
Times are tough, and although my husband has a good job we can’t afford to be spending that much on bloody food each week!!! Summer is coming and with it summer uniforms, I have birthdays to get ready for and also Christmas will be here before I know it. I would also like to have a bit of a life this summer, and maybe go on a little family holiday!! I could do a hell of a lot with an extra $800. a month.
So it is challenge time…. Big challenge time!
Can I get our food spending under control?? Can I get our monthly food bill under $800? Almost halving it. Is this even possible??It’s a tall order but I think with some very careful planning I might be able to do it!!
I am sort of obsessing about this at the moment. so i will be posting and updating about this often.
But I want to know what has worked for you, What tips and tricks do you have about saving money, do you have any favourite recipes that are low cost and a big family would love?? I want to hear from you!! post a comment in the section below.
Wish me luck!
