  1. I love that you call your leftover night Fend For Yourself! We do the same thing and my husband's parents do as well.

    I am always amazed at women who can stretch money from their food budget and it is a huge goal for this year for me-thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Do you count eating out in your grocery budget? I think your amazing to feed 16 mouths for $100ish a week! I spent more than that on my family of 4!


  3. Jacquekine, I have another budget meal post lined up and I would LOVE to link to this! Is that OK?
