loving frugal life

My name is Lacey, Dh is Jesse and Jacob is almost a year old. We also have a dog named Todd. We have been living on one income now for a little over a year. Its been about 7 months since my unemployment ran out. I babysit on the side about as much as I can for some extra income.

I try and spend no more than $100 on our groceries for the entire month. I am always looking for new deals and everything too. I love diapers.com for my son's diapers, with winter coming I love the fact that I won't have to run to the store and have them be out of his size (for some reason size 3s are hard to find here). :-)

Anyhow, I am always looking for new ways to stretch the money we have coming in. I hope to get to know you all a lot better!

I'm usually on 20ish parents or 2008 sugarbabies. :-) But after grocery shopping last night and only spending $86 on our months worth of groceries, I thought I would check this board out and get lots more tips and ideas for stretching our budget. :-)

Glad to "meet" you as well.

I have to ask, how do you do that?

Wow how did you do that? I spend around $109 per week on groceries. What your trick. I love to have the groceries way under $100!

Welcome to the board, Lacey! Like someone else mentioned, browse through old posts for money-saving ideas. And if you don't see what you're looking for, be sure to ask!!
