When I began my quest of how to lower their grocery bill, while getting my family to eat better and healthier, I was a bit over whelmed. At one point I, of course, spent HOURS clipping coupons, scouring local ads in the paper and on-line for find the best deals and of course searching coupons on-line and using up precious printer ink printing them,and then more HOURS organizing them all. Just to save $50-$75 every 2 weeks? Now I'm definately not saying clipping coupons isn't worth it, because in many cases it is, and there are soooo many people who are really good at it, and really enjoy it. But for myself, it just isn't worth spending that much time doing something I really don't enjoy. With that said, I do still clip coupons and search ads, only on a much smaller scale. Plus I now know exactly what I am looking for: Whole foods and items used to create homemade versions of store bought convenience foods, only in a healthier way.
So that is what this whole blog is about; a way for me to share with you what I have found, what I use, and perhaps encourage one or two of you to make a change or two with how you feed your family.
I'm Nicole, a stay at home mom of 5 kiddos, homeschools and does my best to feed my family on a budget, which in the middle of the interior of Alaska, can be pretty tough. The little one is M3. LOL I have three girls who all start with M, so I will refer to them as M1, M2 and M3. :) And of course my boys, D and N.
