I had a great find at the store today... bananas that were ready to go. They were less than 20 cents a pound and I can make them into banana bread today (i got enough for a couple loaves). They also had apples, carrots, celery, and some lettuces. If I had it in me I could have bought the apples to make apple sauce, and the veggies would have been great for soup.
Which is something to look into eldadeedlit, and also a lot of people have said to buy a whole chicken, roast it eat it and use the bones and leftovers for soup, which can last a few days, and can be very hearty, just add potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, corn etc. Plus some herbs you have around (garlic, bay, salt, pepper) and add some dumplings (which are filling too). We have only one meat meal a week now, and the rest is tofu, beans or something like that. Also, making your own pasta/pizza sauce is really cheap and you can make alot. I made recently enough sauce for 3 pizzas and two pasta dishes for about the price of one can of ready made sauce.
So for this week I spent $75.00. Which is better, but I would still like it to be around $60.00. Even buying non-organic I can't seem to get us below that. That maybe all I can do. There are 6 of us.
