Want to see what we bought for this week’s $70 grocery budget?
I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 budget for our family of five.
This includes almost all of our breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and
dinners + most household products (toiletries, laundry soap,
etc.).

By the way, what are your best tips for keeping lettuce
fresh?
I don’t want all the lettuce I bought to go to
waste before we can use it, but it will probably take us at least
5-7 more days to eat through all that. Any great suggestions?
