My goal is to feed my family on $40 week including all cleaning, paper products etc...(anything you
can buy at Wal-Mart excluding clothes & toys) I am excluding Baby Formula for now but including diapers. So my goal budget
for my family of 5 is 180 month (or $268 with the formula) The Meal plan is at the bottom of the page and as I perfect
it I'll add to it!
To do this you must have a Meal Plan (a plan of what you are going to eat for a week, 2 weeks or a
month!) i do assume you have certain things on hand such as salt.

what the savings is as well as if there are any pertinent coupons that increase your savings. So you can end up paying .39
for eggo waffles.
