wow thats a lot of mouths to feed…i recently cut my budget down,
and found that it wasnt that hard. I started omac..(once a month
cooking). buying making and freezing meals ahead, that really helped
Also I put it in my head–no premade purchases such as frozen
pizza, hot pockets, perogies, french fries etc…I no longer buy
prepackaged premade foods that i can make myself at home ahead of
time and freeze for later. I purchase 50 lb. bags of potatoes, cut
into fries, boil 2 min…then flash freeze and bag them up for later,
I also used the potatoes for twice baked potatoes, perogies, etc…
make my own pizza’s and hot pockets ahead and freeze them, everything
is premade so the lazy members in the family…at least my family can
just grab it from the freezer and put it in the microwave…o yea
dont forget the cookies do you know how many cookies you can make for
the price of a store bought pack….well i hope this helped a little.
lots of luck, jodi
