It’s ready! I feel as though I may have missed SOMETHING, but for now, this is what it is. I will keep it updated as I think of things… and I will include this in the page at the top titled “Meal Planning Sundays” (which I SO desperately need to update!!).
Here’s the link:
Just a reminder of what this is (in case you missed it!)… Our family is going to be on a tighter budget from now through the end of the summer, so I have decided to come up with a plan so that we stick with real foods and stay with-in our much smaller budget. I will do what I can to continue buying organic, but that won’t be priority #1 at all times because it just won’t be in the budget. I’m going to do my best to continue buying raw milk, raw honey, etc, but again, it may not happen. I’m trying to cut out all non-essentials, but with life being busy, there will be times that I buy things that aren’t essential. Again, this is my “ideal plan,” and I’m hoping to be able to mostly stick with it! I will give myself grace at times because life is life!
Some things that I will be (mostly) cutting out in order to stay with-in our budget: Vitamins (the desire is to eat well enough to be able to cut these out!), eating out (which isn’t healthy anyway!), most processed foods (even healthier ones), cutting down on my coffee habit (giving myself some grace/freedom, but trying to cut down), and I’m mostly cutting out anything “special” and keep things super simple. I’m planning to just shop at Costco and Trader Joe’s (with the exception of getting our wheat berries through Azure Standard every few months and our milk through the co-op every two weeks).
Let me know what you think!!
