“Stay away from precooked or premade foods. They are
VERY EXPENSIVE!”….Unless they are on a Buy One Get One Free sale and you
have 2 coupons for them. Then sometimes they are much
cheaper than making it yourself.Once you have been doing it for awhile, you will get
the hang of it. I keep a spreadsheet of what I spend
on each item I buy. Then I can see if the sale astore has is really a good deal or not. I used to
spend around $400-600 a month in groceries (I do home
childcare and have to feed 6 kids breakfast, lunch andsnacks on top of my family’s meals)… I now spent
between $200-250. For the month of January I spent
$250 but I had stocked up on sodas… got 24 12-packsfor around $1 each at CVS on sale. That will last me
about 6 months but I won’t be able to find a sale like
that again for a LONG time so I stocked up.Amy
