I once had a great habit of doing weekly menus and making a shopping list accordingly. However, with the many recent changes in life, I've gotten a bit off track:-( Now I'm happy to share with you that I'm getting back into taking time to plan our family meals on a weekly basis.
For the past 2 weeks, I've spent the same amount of money for one week of feeding our family of 10 as I used to spend for 2 1/2 days before my "prep day" each week...This also includes meals for hosting Shabbat fellowship which requires much larger portions.
This is truly amazing to me because it equates to over $500 dollars in savings per month!!!
Furthermore, I didn't even have to spend Marlons hard earned money at the Super Giant to get these savings. Just simply planning meals from scratch, plus doubling some recipes has proved super successful. And just imagine, as I continue to buy bulk and if I get a handle on this couponing mindset, we'll be saving even MORE CHA-CHING($$).
I'm so excited and hope you'll consider some of your shopping habits and how you can make improvements :-)
