Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people (mostly) on the cheap.  The FishMama Trifecta is in full swing!

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  Here we are the end of the first week of May! That went fast. I feel like the week was a complete blur. I limped to the end of my Whole 3o and opted not to […]

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  Well, I can’t say we made it through the month with flying colors, but we made it through the month. We saved a lot of grocery money in January and February doing our pre-termite fumigation pantry […]

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  As you know this month is an anomaly for me in the grocery department. Not only am I recovering from the Great Pantry Challenge of 2016 (aka When-We-Ate-Almost-All-the-Food-in-the-House-for-a-Termite-Fumigation), but I’m also doing a Whole 30 challenge. […]

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  So, this week I’ve been eating all Whole 30, so that means I’m running out of vegetables.

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  I’ll be honest. I’ve put off writing this post because I know the final tally is going to make some people drop their jaws. Sigh. But, in the efforts of full disclosure, I’m writing it. When last […]

Buying healthy food on a budget is possible! You don’t have to relegate yourself to cheap, processed items. You do need to shop wisely. Here’s how. Eating healthy on a budget can be tricky because healthy food tends to be more expensive than bad-for-you food. A quick glance at the grocery store ads shows how […]

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  Sorry for leaving y’all hanging last week with no Grocery Geek update! We were actually doing the whole termite tent thing. That means I was a crazy person, trying to get everything packed, secured, evacuated. I […]

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap.  So, I’m ending this third month of shopping from week to week instead of stocking up. It’s about to drive me crazy. Crazy, I tell ya. I’m thankful the end is in sight. For those of […]

Grocery Geek: March, Week 1

Want a peek into our grocery cart? Here’s how I’m grocery shopping and feeding eight people on the cheap. It was an amazingly uneventful week in the grocery department. I’m a little shocked, actually. Some weeks are filled with lots of little stops throughout the week. I guess I did pretty good shopping last weekend […]
