Real Food on Budget
Week of November 5, 2018.

Monday, November 05, 2018 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

The past three weeks I have finally felt like me again. Life is full of hills and valleys and I feel like my life has been one rollercoaster ride for the last 8 years. I am so beyond grateful for my amazing family and how much of a support they have been for me over the last few years. I am not sure how I would have made it through without them.

I have chosen to renew my blog domain which also means I am going to get back to what I am passionate about. My passions have not changed. I love sharing my simple living tips and life with all of you. We are just getting into the crazy Christmas time of year. It is even more important that I keep on track with my grocery budget so that all other things can be kept within my budget making Christmas easier to cash flow.

I did a major inventory of my freezer and I have enough meat in the freezer to make it through the whole month of November. I know I will have to pick up milk and fresh produce but I should be able to save a lot of my grocery budget this month.
