Food challenge: I have $100 to last our family of 4 for the next week. This is an experiment to see how well we can budget our grocery $ and really consider what we are sometimes wasting our money on. Tomorrow (Thursday) is shopping day. Hubby will go with me and together we will decide how to best stretch our dollars to buy enough quality (mostly organic) produce, dairy, and grain items. We will even go to Costco and our local health food store for some goods. Can we do it? Keep in mind I make 90% of our meals from scratch ... and our freezers and pantry are stocked with wholesome foods. Tomorrow I shall list what we purchased and what our strategy is to make it last a whole week. Our goal is to cut our yearly grocery bill in half ... cut out the waste ... eat healthy ... stay tuned.
In the mean time, here are a few links to articles and blogs about food waste:
