It's important to understand how you can plan your meals to help make the most of your budget. Here are some helpful tips from a Professional Home Economist (P.H.Ec.) to help feed your family without breaking the bank:
Be aware of how much you spend on ‘actual’ food for your family by keeping track of all purchases for a week or two. Remember not to confuse the cost of pet food, diapers, and sundries as part of the ‘food’ total.
Your family food bill may be less than you think and it’s not necessary to break the bank.

Great post. I’d love to see a future blog post on meatless meals that meat-eaters will actually eat! Or maybe recipes that add extra ingredients as meat extenders.

Love this post, there’s a lot of great ideas. Especially like freezing small portions if tomato paste and herbs. Thanks for the post! Hanne
