So how can I keep my food budget at about $200 a month? It's my goal. I use to go to the grocery store every day. I am now going on Sunday night or Monday. I shop at Redners. I have tried Aldi and Bottom Dollar. They really are not that much cheaper. Walmart is not close to me (Thank God). I think I would spend the gas money in exchange for the discount. So it's a wash in my mind.
Yes, I meal plan. We also get our meat and pork from Rohrbach Farm.
