Use these 8 simple tips to help you figure out how to feed a large family on a budget. 

Plan Your Meals Around Sales

When grocery shopping on a budget, especially when it’s a tight budget- I go to the store, see what’s on sale and then plan my meals around what I find on sale. So I do a meal plan- but based on what I bought, I don’t buy based on what I plan. Shopping this way is such a simple way to save money in your grocery budget.

Use Building Blocks to Curb Splurges

Cooking and prepping building blocks at the beginning of the week can help save you time and energy during the week. This can also help you save money because you are less likely to go out to eat or splurge on ready-made food when you have half of dinner already prepped.

Make a Cheap and Filling Filler

Use cheap “fillers” in your meals, so everyone fills up on that rather than the more expensive main dishes. Some examples can be bread, cheap vegetables like potatoes, or soup.

Go Vegan-ish

Instead of eating meat, chicken, fish, or cheese as a main dish, we switched to eating various beans and tofu as the main dish instead. Doing this major diet switch helped save us tons of money on food, and we are starting to be more healthy overall.
