With some compromises I hadn't planned, it is possible to find and purchase groceries for the week, for a family of three, for $63.
Doing it took some major planning - reading through the sale circulars for our local grocery stores, planning a menu for the week based on what was on sale before I headed to the store, and then lots of mental math in an effort to cut through the hype of some sales, which it turned out were not a bargain!
Our first meal from my finds - a salad with romaine, tomato, sliced almonds, chick peas and ranch dressing; sausage with red and green peppers, onions and mushrooms; iced tea with lemon.
A simple meal that was delicious!
In posts that follow I'll detail the shopping trip, decisions made along the way, and each day take pictures of our meals for the week!
I haven't crunched the numbers for nutritional value yet, but will as the week continues and let you know how we do!
