My grocery bill has gotten seriously out of hand($400-$500 per month) and we are semi-vegetarians. Me and my oldest (my youngest doesn't eat meat anymore) only eat meat or Saturdays and/or Sundays, and that's some low-cost chicken or fish, and we have roast about once a month. Other than that, we have meatless meals consisting of a starch and vegetables and perhaps meat substitutes (Boca crumbles, tofu, veggie dogs, etc.). My girls take their lunches, so that's included in the $400-$500 per month. However, out of that $400-$500, I'm still mostly buying my lunch! Fridays are generally pizza night, where they have a store-bought cheese or veggie pizza. Oh, $16-$24 per week goes on Silk soy milk. I will start going back to Trader Joe's or somewhere where I can get half-gallons of soy milk that doesn't have to be refrigerated until open for about $2.49. Currently, I am paying $2.98 to $3.59 per half gallon of milk. Lately, they've been complaining of being soooo hungry. My goal is to get down to $250 per month. I don't understand how it's so hard since we are not buying alot of meat. We also cannot do alot of processed foods and make dinner biscuits and rolls, and desserts from scratch. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
