What I would do...

I have been asked what I would buy on my budget if I didn't have any food in my freezer.

Here are my disclaimers... By looking at these ads I am not really impressed. I am going to fake like I have no groceries but in real like I am not going to be getting many things at all because I have all the meat in my freezer when it was on sale. 2) I have a family of 4 but 2 of my 4 are 3 and under, so I can make one dinner and it will last us 2 nights. I only cook 3-4 times a week. So my meal planning has more but they are just tucked away in pantry/freezer etc until I need another meal.

My budget is $150 a week. That is for food, toiletries, diapers etc

I have staples in my house no matter what... like Peanut Butter, Jelly, canned corn, canned green beans, a couple of cans of Ravioli, Mac N cheese, some sort of Pasta Roni type of side.
My son is in love with PB and J sandwiches, so he can have that everyday for lunch and be happy. In my last post you all saw that I got a ton of cereal so I have breakfast foods, and lunches are under control.
This is just MY PLAN for the week. You need to take the ads and plan according to YOUR family.
I hope this helps answer some of the questions I have been receiving.
Hint: Smiths has a case lot sale twice a year. So be looking for it in August or September.
