Eating Better for Less

I’m a numbers kind of person. I love them. When I’m doing something that keeps my body busy, but not my mind, I often run numbers through my head. I figure out how much it costs in gas to go to the grocery store, how many gallons of oil give as much heat as a cord of wood (still working on that one), I do my budget in my head, then figure out how much I spend annually on certain things (a fantastic eye-opening exercise by the way).

A huge amount of my figurin’ time is spent on budget related items. I’m always trying to figure out how much I’m spending and how to spend less and the largest flexible area of our budget is for food.  So when I came across this post, I was definitely interested. The thought that I could spend less money for nourishing food is huge. The thought of spending less money for nourishing food that I could spend less time cooking? Oh, I can’t even put it into words! Ok, so maybe my family won’t go for eating kale, oats and milk every day, but it is definitely food for thought. (Sorry, had to do it.)
