Plans for 2015

I want to let you all know what the plans are for this blog. I am still in the construction phase of this blog, but I want it to be a useful place that can help you live a more frugal lifestyle. 

Since I got married in 2007 my husband and I have made very deliberate choices that have put us in a place where we must live a very frugal lifestyle. We have 5 children, and I made the decision to leave my job as a Respiratory Therapist about 2 years ago, so that I could focus on my family. 

Because of that decision I have had to learn to feed our family on a very small grocery budget. 

My goal over the next year is to provide you all with meal plans that I am using, and examples of how I shop and feed our family. Our children range in age from 6 years old, almost 7, down to 19 months. We have some food allergies that we have to maneuver around as well. Everything I share here will be what I have purchased and what I am planning on or have already used for my family. 

I live in South Carolina, and I do most of my shopping at Aldi and Sam’s. The prices here are less than in other states. So there may be discrepancies between prices listed here and where you live. 

Ultimately I want to share the principles of how I am feeding my family of 7. 

If you have any questions at all as we go through this process please, Ask them. I have worked on sharing meal plans and my frugal shopping methods before and it seems that I am always leaving something out. So if there is something that you feel is missing, please let me know and I will see what I can do for you. 

I do not plan to have much posted on this blog until I have some meaty content. 

I thank you for your patience, and I look forward to serving you soon.
