For our family, part of frugal living is paying close attention to what we budget for food. It’s incredibly easy to blow your monthly grocery allowance out of the water in one shopping trip. Personally, I budget $400-$500 monthly for all groceries (eating out is a separate expense) and stick to it by meal planning and shopping accordingly. It’s a constant battle and can get super difficult to stick with.
One of the biggest challenges in my day-to-day life is finding inexpensive dinners that our whole family enjoys. I’ve spent the last few years collecting and altering recipes in order to build a list that I can pick from every week, and just recently added this awesome meal.
