I think the title says most of it.  We have a family of six, soon to be seven (not that #7 will eat much!) and I desperately need to cut back.  The best place I can think of doing it is the grocery budget.  How do you keep your grocery budget to a minimum?

It is kind of different because we are a family of 3.  So what works for us might not work for a larger family. But, we never buy in bulk because a lot goes wasted. We don't save money by buying in bulk, whereas a large family might save more buying in bulk.

I save a lot by purchasing generic-only brands.
