Your Food Budget

Several years ago when food prices started creeping up I realized our food budget  just wouldn’t feed us unless I figured out what changes I could make.

For me, it has always been a challenging and fun exercise to see what new and different ideas I could put into practice and have a family that was well fed and happy with their food.

I know there are a number of other mothers having similiar problems, but who don’t know what to do or how to go about changing the habits we all seem to develop.

Smarter Food Budget

I knew I had to buy smarter. I finally realized I needed to figure out what foods were absolutely essential for good health. Then we need to know how to buy the essentials at a reasonable price.

After a lot of thinking, I finally came up with a list of three items we absolutely must have for a healthy body and brain. Where do we get the three items?

My absolute must list is – fats, proteins and carbohydrates as found in fruits and vegetables and a little grain. That three item list is pretty simple and it is all you need!

Where do you get the three items? Your carbohydrates can be raised in your own garden or you can buy them at a store or a farmers market. Unless you live in the country, you most likely can’t raise meat or milk animals, so you will have to buy them from someone or the store. You can buy your fats at the store.

Write down where you can buy your carbohydrates, your fats and your meat or other proteins. My list might look like – Carbohydrates – garden and store     Fats – store          Proteins – dairy, egg lady, store

Practical Food Budget Ideas

I’ll put the food budget list where I can see it often and I will watch for sales.

We will go into more detail on what to shop for, how to shop and how to use the items we buy,  in the future.

Come along and join us! Give your food budget all the expediency it deserves.
