Despite the fact my freezer is stocked full, I am a TOTAL grocery whore recently.

Kay, I'm in w/you! I always track my grocery spending but this month I'm doing a personal challenge to help me use up things I have on hand. I'm hoping to mostly just buy milk, bread and fresh produce. Though I won't pass up any really good loss leaders!--But the deal has to be REALLY good!


I'm at $54.47 for July as of today. $30 of that is my Angel Food order that will be picked up later in the month. I did sit down last night and plan out some menus for the next 2-3 weeks--all using food on hand.


Good luck--you can do it!

Hi Kelly,

I'm lurking on this site and shoestring budgeting because my family needs to get a grip on spending especially grocery shopping. It's amazing how much of our money goes to unnecessary boxed grocery store items.

I see from this post that you order from Angel Food Ministries. I have never heard of it before and there are lots of locations in my area that provide this services. I showed it to my DH and he responds with "what's the catch". I don't think there is one, but I want to ease his mind. How is the food quality?

Thank you!

Hi Missy! Sorry it took me so long to reply to your post! Better late than never, I guess!
