    Re: Article: 2015 $50 Budget Menu Plan Week 12

    Hello. Im new. This is my family of four first week. Spent $100 trying catch up a little and I spend a little more cause my oldest can't have Some dairy and I'm handicap so somethings I gotta by pre cut. But loving the menus cause I run out of ideas on what to cook. When do yall update? I'm currently going on the last week of March menu for this week?.

    seriously?? on a budget, single, unemployed, and disability issues the food saver has been a GREAT investment for me! I purchased via EBAY for $30 Kroger now has them on clearance for $50. My freezer is full of single meals I can throw in the crockpot. I go to the managers special on meats and break down large packages for meals. I have done items with the food saver for fall (soups etc.) The food saver also comes with a chart telling you how long you can keep certain items in food saver bags for certain length of times (which I keep on the front of my refrig.). I have NO REGRETS here investing in one--much better than freezer burn and throwing items out!

    Just joined today and I gotta say so far I am loving this site!! we just recently went down to one income and so I am trying to do my part to help make ends meet. I have never been one to plan meals ahead of time but I tried it this week...did pretty good sticking with it. I did miss 2 days one because we had leftovers and the other was due to ball practice running late. I spent about $45 on the missing parts of what I needed to make the meals. I too am shopping and preparing meals for a large family...4 adults and 3-4 children. its a challenge

    I think an important part of your menu/ shopping list is what we DON'T see purchased. No soft drinks, no remade snack items no frozen dinners no bottled water, few cleaning supplies, few personal care items. It's all real food and cleaning and personal care items that are good for us and our planet. That saves $$$ and our health now and for the future!

    When ppl talk about $100 week are you including bathroom stuff/cleaning items which can add tremendously to the bill? I find that I usually have $25 or more in my cart before even leaving the bathroom essentials aisles some weeks. We have 2 adults, 1 teenager and a 4yr old (with occasional 22 yr old son eating) and I can't keep it all below $175 or more per week. I feel like I am drowning at the store!! I hope this site helps me as I just signed up. Thanks everybody!

    THANKS, Freebie Queen! Two questions answered!!

I usually freeze around 4-5 pounds but we end up using it within a month or so. I'd like to freeze more, but concerned about fresh taste. My mother-in-law's gets a strange taste to it--not exactly freezer burn, but not a good taste. When my husband won't eat butter, it clearly has a bad taste. Any suggestions for retaining flavor would be appreciated!
