Saving Money On Food By Buying In Bulk And Making It Yourself...

One of the ways our family tries to save money on groceries since we usually can only spend $350 to $400 a month to feed a family of 9. Just because you spend less does not mean it cannot be healthy. This month I got 4 pounds of pinto beans for $2 dollars and in turn made homemade re fried beans that will last our family 2-3 months, no additives or preservatives!! I also have 6 turkeys in my freezer I buy them when there .45 cents or less per pound and they typically will last til the next holiday season when I restock.

  1. That reminds me of your mom. I remember when she used to buy in bulk when there was a good sale. She was talented at that. Sounds like you are too.
