Start the New Year Right with a Lower Grocery Bill (Giveaway) - Enter to win one of three copies of the Good Cheap Eats cookbook.

I don’t know about you, but I’d like to start the year right — and lower our grocery bill a tad bit. After having done the whole USDA Food Cost Analysis for our family to see that the most frugal plan would have us at $1189.20/month. Wow!

Now I know why it’s been tough to keep to my goal of $900/month to feed the 8 of us. Food has certainly been getting more expensive. And my kids seem to get hungrier every day.

However, if we pay attention and make wise choices, we can still eat well without going broke. The recipes and money saving strategies in my cookbook Good Cheap Eats can help us both do that.

This book is chock full of some of my family’s favorite meals. Please don’t let the $10 price tag concern you. Most dinners in the book don’t come close to the ten buck limit. In fact, I can often feed our ginormous family for that price. Rest assured that this book WILL help you lower your grocery bill.

Happy New Year!

To celebrate the new year and fresh starts, I’ve got three books to giveaway. If Santa didn’t deliver this year, here’s another chance.

  1. Thanks, again, for another chance to win a copy of this book that is on my wish list.

    Happy New Year to you and yours, Jessica!

  2. Thanks for a chance to win your awesome book.
    Blessings to you and your family!

  3. Love your blog! Looking forward for a chance to win your cookbook!

  4. Mandy White says:

    Yay! Santa didn’t show up with it, and I really want it, so I’m super excited for another chance. Maybe I will have more luck than during the December giveaways! Thank you, thank you!

  5. Thanks for the chance! Love your blog! ????

  6. I hadn’t checked those USDA prices lately. Our food budget is only 58% of the thrifty plan. I guess I should be pleased at generally keeping it that low instead of stressing when it goes over occasionally. Then again, they play with monopoly money while I am stuck with reality, so…

  7. Jessica you have helped me so much over the last year. I regularly visit your site and started last year with a pantry challenged which turned out great. I’m in the UK and we’ve never had coupons like you do, a few here and there but that’s it. On the 31st of Dec I signed up to 3 different grocery cashback apps on my phone and Oh my do I wish I’d known about them earlier. Using another website I type in all the products to see where they are the cheapest and most are free. So far I’ve been able to make the dinner for free for three days this week. I’ve got yogurts, meat, fish, crisps, drinks, bread and even loads of milk. There’s about £60 each three weeks to be saved and I’ve signed my hubby up too so we really can save even as a family of 6. I make sure I still don’t buy what we don’t need. So a big thank you it’s your website that made me thrive for a lower grocery bill. The new offers are listed in the morning and I’m excited because I know I can make some great fee purchases. I’d love you book but being in the UK that will be difficult unless you have a digital copy. Warm regards your biggest UK fan Marianne

  8. Have you announced the winners? I know the submissions closed Monday. I keep checking for names! ;))

  9. Thanks for all the tips you offer and thanks for a chance to win your great book
    Happy New Year!!!
