We've been trying to stick to our budget. Being self-employed makes it a little hard on the pocketbook when work is slow. I was watching GMA and they showed a couple with four children who fed their family with $350 a month. Yes, $350. Our budget is $350 for our family of four, which does not include household items, just food. It is really hard to stick to it. Especially with two teenage girls who eat more than pirahnas and a growing 34 y/o who is always hungry and does not gain weight. By the way, I cook three meals a day. So, if any of you out there have a great way to save on some items or cheap/creative menus, please share.
