Check with your community resource center. We are a one income family of 5. Dh makes good money, but we struggle every month. Food is the biggest thing. I easily spent $1000/month on food and household items. I cook from scratch and we eat very healthy food. No dinners from a box in our house. I recently went to our resource center to check it out. One program they had was their "good food box". I was very impressed. Once a month you can order a hamper full of fresh fruits and vegetables. 40lbs of produce for $20. We happened to be there when it was pick up day and the box was full of apples, cabbage, lettuce, oranges, banana's, tomatos, corn on the cob, grapes, potatoes, carrots and so on. Not organic, but I usually can't buy organic produce. It's a matter of buying organic or buying enough to feed my family. I will buy organic when it's a good price. I buy organic meat and dairy unconditionally, but the produce is a tough one. Anyway. It was a good box of food. I am going to place an order at the end of this month for the beginning of next. I will order a 40lb and a 30lb box. That would cost me $35. The 40lb comes with a 10lb bag of potatoes which usually last us a month or longer because we don't usually eat potatoes. I figure I could make soups with the "soup" vegetables like cabbage, carrots and celery and stock the freezer for the month. We go through so much produce.
