This week I have decided to drastically cut my budget only for next week. I want to see if it will be possible to cut it in half and still be able to purchase what we need. Now that is going to be a little difficult because sometimes I have a hard determining what we want and what we need. I will be only using $50 on grocery that week instead of the usual $100. I know that some are thinking that $100 a week is a lot but I am feeding a family of 6 on that amount. I try to use the money to stock up on mostly meat and use other items that I have in my stockpile. I try to buy snacks only from the drug stores when they are cheap or practically free.
We are also debating about cutting the satellite bill but we have to get an outside antenna first to see what local channels are available. I know that it will be a big adjustment for the children but I need to think about improving my finances first. This will just give them more time to play outside and read books. I would love any comments or suggestions on how to reduce the grocery bill.
