    Well, found out today that my grocery budget has been made smaller again, as dh’s check is basically cut in half. Seriously.

    So…how to do with picky eaters?

    in reply to: I need inspiration! #422599

    I feel like we eat the same few meals over and over again. LOL.

    I am just getting tired of it…plus I want to cut down our budget. I need some help, too. Can more people post their menus, please?

    in reply to: Slash Your Milk Bill! #422415

    Well, I live out in a VERY rural area surrounded by woods, swamps, and water. I have Walmart and super 1 within driving distance, but super 1 is much more expensive (it is a chain owned by albertson’s and brookshire’s). I grew up eating all our groceries from there.


    lds isn’t big here…in fact, i know of no mormon churches or anything like it in the area. the nearest sam’s is in an entirely different town, and our truck gets 11 mile per gallon. LOL..

    so that is out. We don’t have a costco r anything like that.

    We used to shop at Kroger, but noticed how our bill was much higher for much less food than WalMart.

    I have thought about checking out schwan’s as they deliver..does anyone know if they are affordable, or will I do better at the store?

    in reply to: Slash Your Milk Bill! #422345

    Does that really work, mixing the powdered with 1% or 2%?

    We usually buy only whole milk, and don’t really mind 2% that bad…. but HATE the taste of powdered milk.

    Also, the only store I can buy groceries is WalMart..does anyone know how expensive powdered milk is there?

    Thanks! I ordered one in my name, one in hubby’s. 🙂

    in reply to: Just wanted to say hi and let you know #422223

    Hi, Janie.. I am new here, too, and so far am loving it! I hope you do, too!

    in reply to: What do You Stockpile? #422222

    We can stock some things in the pantry, but not much in the freezer, as it is small and we have constant power outages down here for torrential storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, etc.

    It just would not be smart. We had an entire freezer stocked last summer and we lost power for almost 3 weeks and lost everything.
