Thanks for watching! We filmed our bi-weekly grocery shopping trip just for you! Our family is still sticking to the $50 budget or $100 per month. It was a bit more challenging this time. Our resources were drained during the snowpacalypse. Want to know how we can stick to this budget?

    400 dollars a month for me and hubby because we love produce. I will do this tho incase I don't have money to budget for food. But man I love fresh produce and I live in canada which a little more expensive I guess.

    Cheap meals if you really dont know how to cook: spagatti with or without meat, breakfast like simply just making pancakes, filling but maybe not healthiest! Smoked saus. can put with green beans and potatoes, hotdogs and mac and cheese, cheese toasties, mashed potatoes and ramen, some of my kids like this, just drain juice and put ramen on top of mashed potatoes. I'm a better cook now but when your kids are little and you have no money u have to figure it out. I've split a chic tv dinner 3 ways once or split a 2 cheeseburger meal at mcds 3 ways. And I say that only because I used to work fast food and either it was on a discount or free. Now I spend 200 easily a wk on groceries because I dont plan or budget, we tried doing black beans for every meal just to cut back but went crazy again the next wk. I have a friend that coupons and only spends maybe 200 a mth. Not sure how people do it and make healthy choices so I'm here to learn I guess!!

    Sadly I live in the Chicago land area and food is expensive, and honestly I didn't realize how expensive till I started watching various grocery hauls. I do know the best day to shop is usually Mondays. Stores stock more on weekends because those are their busiest days, then markdown things for quick sales on Monday.

    Coconut milk has become so expensive that I use Aldi coconut oil to saute the base vegetables and spices, then either powder a quarter cup of coconut flakes in a coffee grinder that I use only for spices or cook some directly into the curry. You don't need a lot to get great flavor. A tablespoon of nut butter is another great flavor addition. Saves a couple of bucks on coconut milk in a can and is just as tasty. Also, the thickener they put in the cans isn't supposed to be good for us (carrageenan). Since curries were meant to use up food on a very tight budget you can play around with your curries and come up with any combination of ingredients and make it work. It's the spices that make it a curry. I get the cumin, turmeric, anise seed, fennel, coriander, red pepper flakes, and ginger powder in bulk and store them in the freezer. Red pepper flakes is an inexpensive substitute for chilis when they're out of season or too costly. Real ginger is even better, but I don't always have it on hand. I've had some success storing clean pieces of ginger in the freezer to grate into a recipe.

    In hard times I use meat almost like a condiment & I don't think my family really notices much.. Rice, pasta, potatoes or beans mixed w/ a little bit of meat: chicken legs (Chicken & dumplings/noodles); those little breakfast pork chops (fried rice); kielbasa sausage (sauerkraut,potatoes & sausage/ Jambalaya/ Red Beans & rice w/sausage;; a $7 chuck roast pulled apart into 4 pieces you can use to flavor things (Beef & Noodles, any kind of soup that would use stew meat) , cube steak (cooked for an hour in either stewed tomatoes or cream of mushroom soup.... Ham steaks cut up into white beans or navy beans.... Also, I'm sure we've all figured out that if you buy 4pounds of hamburger meat for $10 on super-sale, any recipe that calls for a lb of ground beef can be made w/ about .75 lbs. w/ no obvious difference... chili, spaghetti w/ meat sauce. goulash, stroganoff.... also, one chicken breast pounded flat and cut into strips will make enough for all kinds of family stir-fries & even fajitas if there are plenty of beans & other fillings...

Take for example the package of Chicken she paid $2+ but here in Canada I can get chicken for $5 or less then I use my FoodSaver that how I stock up. You will save Money Get a FoodSaver I did.

I probably won't shop again until next week to do the same! We are eating down our freezer and pantry, this is something we do around this time of year due to all our expenditures (property tax, vehicle tags, vacations, and Christmas).

    #(1)= Most important thing about saving money on food is to eat the old school way as they did back in the 50's etc. 2 to 3 times per day. Breakfast Lunch Dinner. And don't eat so much at each meal. #(2)= You can easily spend around 50$ to $80 per month on food and save big. Won't be as tasty as Chipotle but if you want to save, this is the way. Go to Wal-Mart or whatever the cheapest grocery storw around you and buy the following: Eggs,Oatmeal,Ramen Noodles,Cheapest Hot Dogs,Peanut Butter,Bread,Jelly,Beans,Rice, Frozen Veggies and bananas(they are always cheap). That's it. BONUS ROUND/TIPS: This is what I have done when I needed to save money. I got a part time ( 1 to 2 days) of work at Dominos Pizza to work inside the store and basically the pizzas that were made wrong, or cancelled etc for that day, I asked my manager if I can have them instead of the store trashing them and he allowed me to take a few pies home. So I always had food free to take home. 2nd. I went online/called and inquired and spent a good 5hrs of it over a few days doing = Found a bunch of local Food banks, Churches and other social service organizations that help provide/give away free food once a week. 80% of them required you to have some letter from social services that I could not get because they would not find me poor. But the other 20% ( I found a 2 churches that only required a state I.D and once a week you bring your own bags and walk away with like 5 hige bags off all kinds of food. I later learned from another person that gets food from the food bank something cool. Basically you go to a local AA meeting and after attending say 3 days, ask the AA teacher to give you a letter of reccome dation to supplement your food. Take it to one of these food banks that require social service letter and BAM. It serves as one.

      Fealisha Cunningham

      We are a family of 3 (2 adults and a toddler) I spend around $250/ month for groceries. I was spending about $150 but increased it as my son has gotten bigger. With the increase I'm also not running completely out of food before the next grocery trip. I don't drive and depend on others for getting places so I try to only shop once a month. We live in Kentucky and have fairly low grocery prices compared to what I've seen in the facebook group. I always shop sales especially for meat. When ground beef is $2/lb or less I buy at least 5 packs. I also like to shop at a butcher shop about 30 mins away because they have weekly bundle sales on meat (about 30lbs for $40-60) and that last us for the month. I fix a chicken meal using 1 chicken breast, 1 cup of rice, 1 can rotel, 1 can black beans, and some taco seasoning... this makes enough to feed us for 2 sometimes 3 meals. Find a discount/salvage grocery store they are great.

      @The Fundamental Home thank you so much for your detailed reply I appreciate it, I will try doing what you suggested.

    • The Fundamental Home
      The Fundamental Home

      Your costs depends on a number of factors... where you live, what stores you have available, and your dietary needs. I recommend to those who are starting to cut back to cut their budget by 20%. Since you have such a wide cost range ($400 difference), I would say to try to just stick to your low number of $600 for three months. That's about $150 per week, which would be plenty for you and a toddler for groceries. We have a $35 a week entertainment budget which includes eating out. You could use my number and try to limit your eating out costs. That right there would give you significant savings in some months. After you stick to that for three months, cut back another 10% to $540 a month or about $130 a week. Keep cutting until it you reach your limit. Don't forget to make a menu plan. You can do it!

      Check out our recent grocery hauls. Our family size went up to six, and our budget went as high as $65 a week. Now, we have just 4 family members at home and our budget is $50 per week. Double what it was in this video (which is a blessing), but still well under national averages.

    My husband would have a fit if I made him eat chicken all the time. He is a serious beef man. If you bought all beef that would be double or triple the price

      I cleaned out the meat cubby at WalMart about 2 weeks ago. I went in for a few items and saw ground sirloin marked down to $5.83 for 2lbs of beef. I bought all 6 packs! That will last us about 6 weeks. I will rotate meats and dishes, and throw in a few veggie nights to cut cost.

      Rick loves beef, too, but we have to make do with what we have.

    I have a family of 5 and I'm so super excited if I spend less than $1000 a month. To my defense all the kids are teens and eat like crazy!

      Egg noodles are dirt cheap to make! A variation when you're sick of chicken: Buy a chuck roast, tear it into 4-5 pieces (look @ the roast, it will naturally kind of divide itself up.) Freeze the pieces, then cook 1 piece at a time for a few hrs like a little pot roast, add beef broth & make BEEF and noodles.

    It's only my husband, myself and granddaughter. We spend about $900 a month. I'm so ashamed. I just don't know what to fix anymore. We're in our sixties and I'm just tired of trying to think of things to cook. I've been cooking for 40+years.

      I cook only once a week in batches. The rest of the week I just heat and eat. I don’t have to do much thinking about food and cooking at all anymore. I like that.

      grateful1929 perhaps look into batch cooking, then you only have to face it a few times a month

      Don’t be ashamed. How old is your granddaughter? The fact you are raising her is reason enough to give yourself grace. Perhaps she could help? (my daughter is seven and she can make scrambled eggs and muffins (with help of course), my 5 yr old can wash salad and shell beans☺️). Here on youtube you can find so many ideas for quick and cheap meals, 5 meals in one hour and “dump dinners” in crockpot etc.). All the best to you and your family❤️

      I go to my grocery store at 630am. They will have their ground beef at 25% off. Just freeze them.

      Between the 4 different major grocery stores in my neighborhood, leg quarters are always on sale between $0.79-$1.19

      I haven't finished watching the entire video buy I've been in retail for almost 15 years. Grocery stores will mark meat down on Mondays and Tuesdays because the new sale week will start on Wednesdays. So they have to make room for new product. They would be in trouble if they sell ANYTHING out of date. So there's nothing wrong with the discounted meat. 😉👍
