It’s not fair!
I follow all of the grocery shopping rules. You know, the ones that are supposed to save you money.
I make my own freezer stock.
I can stuff.
I grow my own vegetables.
I grocery shop without kids whenever possible.
I cook 95% of our meals at home.
But we still end up spending way more than $144.80 a week on food.
If you asked me if I am thrifty I would say “Yes”. But normally, my family does not follow the Thrifty Budget according to the USDA Cost of Food chart.
We also don’t usually follow the MyPlate requirements because we don’t eat fish two times a week.
Is it possible to do both?
Today the “MyPlate on My Budget” experiment begins.
