It's official: crap food DOES cost way less than healthy food. I keep not wanting to believe it but uggghhh
... after spending about $190 in the first week and a half of March on healthy food... I finally went back to the hillbilly housewife plan (ignoring for the time being that my daughter might very well have to avoid gluten for the rest of her life and instead focusing on how much money I can spend on food
) ... and I just got like a week's worth of food for $20.
Fourteen packages of Top Ramen? - $2
Cheap-o white bread? - $1
Cheap-o processed cheese? - 1 lb for $2
... and etc.
I did however give in and buy my kids the tons of cucumbers and carrots they wanted. But.. I've accepted that I'd rather my kids have full bellies than eat all whole grains and fresh fruits and veggies. Oh well.
: This way I also had some $ left over to buy the supplies for my son's science fair project.
i can share some of my cheaper gf meals if you want. shop asian markets for rice noodle soup....almost as cheap as ramen, and safe for your dd..yummy, too. and the asian markets have non-wheat flours really cheap. its not certified gf, but...
one of our local corner stores is run by a young woman who is very conscious of just about everything......she is allowing our buying club to purchase through her (HUGE discount....) and she accepts food stamps now.... so i can shop the food club with fs!
well.....good morning mamas!
i woke up late so i'm in a hurry...just saying good morning
big hugs to everyone
