      I fedafamily of six for seven years on $300 month plus occasional runs to the food bank. It can be done but it takes planning. Making menus and lists and sticking to them. Checking out sale flyers before shopping. Staying away from convenience foods. Using portion control. Except for fresh items like produce and dairy, shop foramonth atatime. And be flexible.

It’s not my money.”
